Did the same dayhike in September, it's a great place. I love backpacking there but I didn't have time with other stuff I had planned. Actually in the morning I biked Bruno's Run then in the evening I biked at Marquette - that was a full day (got to love vacation).
As for Mackinac Island, take your bike and ride the trails, done it twice now. Some of those elevated shoreline trails are very technical on a bike. And if you want to bail there's a wider smoother path just into the woods (at least on the east side, the west side isn't right on the edge of the cliffs if I have my directions correct).
Thanks bleve and dawsonn57 We did Bruno's run but my memory card became corrupted for some reason lost the pics, I wanted to do Grand Isle to when we were up, but it rained on the last day of the trip. This summer we are heading back to do Copper Harbor and Porcupine Mountains agian, I just moved down here from that area, and Im getting homesick...
Will defiantly try to squeeze in Mackinaw this summer, haven't been back there since I was a kid, and have never biked any of it.
Grand Island is as close to riding Pix Rocks as you'll get, not great single track but great scenery. My wife and I did it a couple years ago and I wish we'd gotten our gear together to make it an overnight trip instead of forcing the circumnavigation in about six hours or so (after Labor Day the shuttle ends earlier). The beach on the north end is the perfect place for a lunch break. If you go, we enjoyed riding it counter clockwise.
