Length:
47 miles

Notes:
From MDOT: "The first road designated as a Scenic Heritage Route was the eighteen-mile segment of US-41 from Central to Copper Harbor in Keweenaw County in the Upper Peninsula. The uniqueness of this road is its forest and how the trees, some as close sas three feet from the edge of the pavement, form a complete canopy over most of the entire length of the Heritage Route. This road provides access to such recreational resources as Lake Superior beaches, Copper Harbor, Historic Fort Wilkins state park, hunting, fishing, and fall color touring."

The first 18 miles of the route were designated as a Scenic Heritage Route in 1994 from Central to Copper Harbor, then extended southwesterly to Mohawk in 2002 and then to Houghton in the spring of 2004.
