The Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive is a 7 mile scenic route that takes you to spectacular overlooks of Lake Michigan, Glen Lake, and the Sleeping Bear Dunes. Two picnic areas are also on the route. A brochure is available at the entrance to the drive for a self-guided tour which has 12 designated stops that are described in the brochure and on interpretive signs at the stops.
