The Restless Viking: Michigan’s Wooden Highways

This article was originally published on October 11, 2022 on The Restless Viking website.

In the middle/late 1800s, Michigan led the country in the building of plank roads. Poppins and I take a road trip to see what remains. And, there is, surprisingly, some fragmentary evidence of these wooden turnpikes that existed over 100 years ago.

Take a ride with us as we explore.

Chuck and Martha Hayden, aka The Viking and Poppins, enjoy going on adventures off the beaten path. They also like to share their explorations with others. The Viking is a retired expedition leader while Poppins is a retired teacher. The two offer independent views of their journeys showcasing places, people, and cultures as they explore the world.
