Along US-127

In many places, US-127 is a concession to safety as it replaces its parent route, US-27. It runs 582 miles 758 miles from Chattanooga, Tennessee, to Grayling, Michigan.

The last sections, north of Lansing, Michigan, actually offer a better option for riders, even though they are four lane divided roads. They are still very scenic, and don't have the potholes and section bumps that had become endemic to Old US-27.
