MACKINAC BRIDGE



ATV & Snowmobile Trails 90

When you see the Mackinac Bridge in the distance, your heart will beat a little faster. This magnificent structure connects Michigan’s Lower Peninsula with the Upper Peninsula. It casts a spell on everyone that crosses it. Designed by the great engineer, Dr. David B. Steinman, its five-mile expanse makes it the longest suspension bridge in the western hemisphere. When your vehicle reaches the roadway’s mid-span, you will be nearly 200 feet above where Lakes Michigan and Huron meet. The view is breathtaking no matter what the day, the hour, the season. And once a year, on Labor Day, you can experience the strength and grace of this manmade wonder as you walk across it … something you will want to add to your bucket list.

Sensational S U M M E R Summer is the most popular time to visit the U.P. The weather is warm enough to enjoy the water, but not so unbearably hot that you hide in air-conditioned rooms. This is a season filled with family memories — destination weddings, anniversary celebrations and family reunions. The U.P. is the one place on earth you have access to Lakes Huron, Michigan and Superior — for hours of fresh-water swimming, boating, fishing, shipwreck hunting and sun soaking. Comb the sandy beaches for semi-precious agates. Write or paint in an artist-in-residence cabin. Or choose to play, fish or float in hundreds of inland lakes.

6

Summer is also for exploring lovingly preserved historic sites and islands, hiking or biking miles of scenic trails, cliff jumping off Black Rocks, golfing, going to music festivals, boutique shopping and gallery hopping or telling spine-chilling stories around beach bonfires. At day’s end, plan to stop everything to watch the sun set in blazing glory.

Awe-Inspiring A U T U M N After Labor Day, summer eases into autumn. The cooler nights transform the U.P.’s green hardwood forests into fiery hues of topaz yellow, copper orange and ruby red. There are 10 color tours posted at www.UPtravel.com/fallcolor. Peak leaf viewing is mid September to mid October. Hiking, biking, kayaking and canoeing are great ways to see fall’s intense beauty. Even golf courses offer spectacular autumn vistas. This is a great time to visit the U.P.’s more than 40 lighthouses. Bring your binoculars for better views of the thousands of songbirds, raptors and waterfowl winging their way south on ancient flight paths. The Garden and Stonington Peninsulas are great for seeing migrating monarch butterflies, too. Anglers and hunters will thrill at bringing home fish, small and big game … and great stories. Others enjoy gathering up fresh produce and thimbleberry jams at roadside stands or raising glasses of Michigan-made wines and microbrews with friends.

Wondrous W I N T E R

whether you come in summer, fall, winter or spring, the U.P. hoteliers and resort owners will have a room ready for you. so stay out as late as you can … you won’t want to miss the stars or northern lights. www.UPtravel.com

Eventually the iron-gray skies and gales of November blow in winter. The U.P. looks forward to snow (200 inches annually). The temperatures are comfortably cold, not bone-chilling. There are thousands of miles of groomed snowmobile trails, dozens of ski resorts and hundreds of miles of cross-country and snowshoe trails in the U.P. Where there is ice you’ll see fishing shanties, pond hockey and ice skating. If you enjoy extreme challenges try ice climbing, ice sailing and snow biking. Learn to race dogs from a musher. Hike to frozen waterfalls. Look for eagles and tundra swans. Curl up by a fire reading at one of our hotels or resorts. U.P. chefs will have comfort foods steaming on the stove and hot pasties waiting for you.

Sensuous S P R I N G Spring is slow to arrive and quick to leave in the U.P., so you’ll treasure every moment! When you see the trees tapped on Les Cheneaux and Sugar Islands, you know there will soon be fresh maple syrup for this region’s Paul Bunyan-size flapjacks. As the snow melts, the rivers roar to life for incredible kayaking and canoeing. This is also the premier season for seeing waterfalls. With more than 150 named falls (and many unnamed), you are never far from hearing them thunder. Spring rains bring wildflowers and worth-hunting-for morel mushrooms. Lilacs bloom on Mackinac Island and around the ruins of the Peninsula Point Lighthouse in Delta County. And while you can enjoy winter sports as late as April in the U.P., by May you can trade your skis and snowmobiles for golf clubs and ATVs. The air is so fresh, gulp it in.

MOUNTAIN BIKING HEAVEN Copper Harbor Trails are designated a Ride Center by the International Mountain Bicycling Association – one of only seven trails in the world – to earn this coveted ranking! FREE-WHEELING FUN Houghton and Marquette made the list of the top Bicycle-Friendly Communities in the nation by the League of American Bicyclists. PERMISSION TO RIDE Annual trail permits (October 1 to September 30) are required to operate snowmobiles on public trails in the State of Michigan. ORVs need an annual license (April 1 to March 31) to ride on public trails and state forest roads. For more details, visit www.michigan.gov/dnr SNOWSHOE ETIQUETTE When snowshoeing, please do not walk on the groomed or skied-in cross-country track. Walk to the side or have fun blazing your own trails in the woods.

B I K I N G There are thousands more miles to explore after today’s ride In addition to the trails listed on page 89, you can ride thousands of miles of logging roads, abandoned railroad grades, state and national forest trails, single tracks, back roads, off-season cross-country ski trails and low-traffic state highways. To find out about rentals, group tours, wilderness rides and amazing races, call 800/562-7134 or visit www.UPtravel.com. www.UPtravel.com

DOWNHILL SKIING & SNOWBOARDING “Snow” many reasons to ski or board here Downhill skiers and snowboarders will find a range of runs and verticals that will challenge every skill level at the U.P.’s more than a dozen ski resorts. Add in the area’s temperate climate (rarely are the temperatures bitter cold), night entertainment, kids-ski-free deals, Alpine races and the U.S. National Ski Hall of Fame and Museum (Ishpeming) and you have a recipe for winter fun. See page 92 for slope details.

cross - countr y s K I I N G & SNOWSHOEING If you seek a quiet place to explore … it’s here In the U.P., you are never far from a place to cross-country ski or snowshoe. In addition to the Nordic tracked and groomed trails listed on pages 91-92, there are millions of acres of meadows and forested backcountry to traverse from late November to mid April.

WAT E R C R A F T & B O AT I N G Play in the water … everywhere With three Great Lakes (Michigan, Huron and Superior), hundreds of inland lakes and ponds and thousands of miles of streams and rivers, it’s natural to spend time by the water. Whether it’s kayaking, canoeing, rowing, sailing, wave riding, pedal boating or opening the throttle on your pleasure boat, the U.P. has the waters to do it. Explore sunken shipwrecks, see boat races or spend days watching the mighty freighters navigate their 1,000+ feet-long hulls through the Soo Locks or up to the docks in Marquette.

SNOWMOBILING & OFF-ROADING It doesn’t get better than this Snowmobilers repeatedly vote the U.P. as the best place in America to run their sleds. With an average snowfall of 200 inches, 3,000 miles of groomed trails and forest and shoreline scenery that lure you around bend after bend, this is a snowmobiler’s paradise. After the snow melts, ORV and ATVers get their off-road kicks on our trails (see page 90) or on state forest roads. Up here, you’re never too old to play in the dirt or snow. www.UPtravel.com

waterfalls Hear the water roar ... and whisper The U.P. is home to all but one of Michigan’s waterfalls. There are more than 300 falls scattered across the U.P., ranging in size from under 5 feet to 48+ feet vertical drops. Almost all require hiking to reach, but there are paths (several barrier-free) to some of the most popular. The best time to see them is in spring when even the smallest falls roar to life. They are also beautiful in winter and, if you’re up to the challenge, try ice climbing (Munising and Miners Falls are favorite columns of ice to scale). For a list of waterfalls and directions, see each county listing in this booklet.

See so much more on foot Whether you base yourself out of a campground, cottage or hotel, you are within minutes of great hiking and backpacking in the U.P. Choose from 1-to-2-mile loops near town, seemingly endless trails on Isle Royale or cross the U.P. on the North Country National Scenic Trail. There are backcountry and marked trails through forests, over mountains and along shorelines that are filled with wildlife and hundreds of waterfalls. Or hike to historic sites and dozens of lighthouses. It’s worth trying, but you won’t see it all in your lifetime! Dive into the haunting history of Great Lakes shipwrecks at Whitefish Point.

H I S T O R Y , C U LT U R E & S H O P P I N G Lots to do indoors, too History is retold just about everywhere in the U.P. — and it goes back centuries at the various mineral and Native American museums. More recent history collections will introduce you to vintage snowmobiles, skis and snowboards. You also can enjoy festivals and great performances. Or visit places where classic movies were shot and authors were inspired to write treasured stories and poems. Shoppers will find everything from polished agates to the latest fashions in our historic downtowns. And the U.P.’s antique shops, art galleries and candy and jam shops are always worth a side trip, too.

R ocks & collectibles Gather up memories It is no surprise that rockhounds from around the world scour the beaches, rock piles and gravel pits in the U.P. There are more than 150 collectible rocks and minerals to find. The Keweenaw Peninsula is often cited as the best rockhounding ground in the North Central U.S. But don’t limit your searches to rocks. This is a good hunting ground for fossils, beach glass, old bottles and much more. Search with your camera for wild orchids, ferns and wildflowers. Or harvest tasty morels from state forests in the spring.

FISHING King-size salmon to tiny smelt Whether you want to sit in a shanty in winter, wade into a trout-filled river in spring, charter a fishing excursion on one of the Great Lakes in summer or cast your hook into an inland lake in the early-morning hours of fall, the fishing is good all year in the U.P. You can get a Canadian fly-in experience without the airplane travel on our wilderness lakes and rivers. If you’re new to fishing in the U.P., you’ll find plenty of guides and charters (check www.UPtravel.com for names).

Thrill to your favorite songs

Come play in our neck of the woods

Be awed by beacons of history

In the U.P., spring and fall are peak bird watching (and listening) seasons when thousands of birds traverse U.P. skies. Nearly 400 different species, including Boreal Owls, Kirtland’s warblers, loons and pileated woodpeckers, have been sighted across our mainland and islands. Winter also offers fun sightings of tundra swans, evening grosbeaks and ruffed grouse. This is a great place to introduce children (or yourself) to a year-round playlist of bird songs. Favorite spots are Whitefish Point, Seney National Wildlife Refuge, AuTrain Lake, Copper Harbor, Drummond Island, Grand Island, Hessel and Isle Royale.

Whether you are a beginner or a scratch golfer, you’ll find your level of challenge on more than 50 public courses from mid April through October. Call ahead for the tee time you want. The green fees offer great value for outstanding play. And if you like to watch the game, several courses offer tournament action that draws some of the Midwest’s best players. For course descriptions, see each county page in this booklet.

Along the U.P.’s Great Lakes coasts you will find more than 40 lighthouses, most built in the mid 1800s. Many continue to guide ships and boats safely into harbors and around dangerous shoals. A dozen of them are open for public tours. You can also volunteer to be a lighthouse keeper at several stations and others offer memorable bed and breakfast stays. Some require hiking to reach by land, but a boat guarantees you’ll get a view. For a list of lighthouses, see each county section.

Ask anyone who has crossed the Straits of Mackinac, the body of water that separates the Lower Peninsula of Michigan from the Upper Peninsula and separates Lake Michigan from Lake Huron, and you will be told something mysterious will happen within you. As you enter the U.P. your heart will suddenly feel freer. Adventurous. Happy. Cross the Straits … and stir your soul.

Crossroads to the Great Lakes When you arrive in St. Ignace, whether as an individual, with your family or a group — adventure, history and festivals await you in every direction. You can take one of three ferry lines from St. Ignace, east across Lake Huron’s waters to one of Michigan’s favorite destinations, Mackinac Island. Open year-round, this resort island is most popular in summer and fall and offers a car-less venue of pre-Revolutionary War to present-day sites, world-famous hotels and foodie destinations (creamy fudge is a specialty). Thirty miles northeast of St. Ignace are the charming fishing towns of Hessel and Cedarville and a series of 36 charming islands, the Les Cheneaux. The islands boast the most wooden boats in the U.S. and some of the best regional art shows. For a breathtaking view of Lake Michigan’s dunelined shore, drive US-2 west from St. Ignace. Cut north to Curtis and Manistique Lakes for inland water fun and in the fall, some of the best tree shows around.

Springboard to past and present cultures

Spirit Connection

There are places that have a deep impact on your inner spirit. And whether it is your first time or the thousandth time to cross the Mackinac Bridge to the Upper or Lower Peninsula of Michigan, your heart will soar. At 5 miles from end to end, it is the third-longest suspension bridge in the world. It is also the shortest distance to the best of times. “The Mighty Mac,” Mackinac Bridge Straits of Mackinac

Mackinac County does a fabulous job preserving its Native American and 300+ years of European and American settler history. Museums, historic markers, parks and Victorian-era buildings help you relive the stories. The county’s vintage snowmobile museum, classic car and antique wooden boat shows tell more recent history. All year the area hosts boredom-busting festivals for all ages — from St. Ignace’s fireworks over the bay every Saturday night (early July to Labor Day) to tractor pulls to ice sailing and pond hockey championships. Plus, when you’re in Mackinac County, you are just a day trip away from many other favorite U.P. destinations.

You’ll find so much to do in Chippewa County you’ll need to plan a return trip … or two! Soo Locks. Historic sites. Fishing. Golfing. Snowmobiling. Three casinos. Drummond Island with its natural beauty and affordable activities. You’ll never run out of fun.

Historic Sault Ste. Marie Start at Soo Locks, an engineering marvel in operation since 1855 that connects Lake Superior to the lower Great Lakes and is the largest and busiest locks system in the world. Soo Locks Boat Tours give you great views. The city exudes history. Michigan’s oldest city, it was established by Jacques Marquette in 1668 as a French Catholic outpost. The 21-story Tower of History, open mid May through mid October, gives you a 25-mile view. See the River of History Museum, the Museum Ship Valley Camp (a retired ore carrier), Fort Brady and historical churches. The Water Street Historic Block includes missionary Bishop Baraga’s home. The Sault Tribe of Chippewa Indians Interpretive Center shows how the area was also hallowed as a meeting place by Native Americans.

Out of town Nature lovers can take a ferry, plane or boat to Drummond Island for excellent camping, hiking, biking, fishing and off-roading. There are 99 miles of ORV trails, 44 miles approved for Jeeps, and miles of biking trails. See the rare prairie smoke flower (mid May to mid June) in the Alvar region of the Maxton Plains. Kayakers can see three wooden shipwrecks as they paddle over. In Whitefish Point you can tour the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum and remember the Edmund Fitzgerald through the ship’s artifacts. Head outside to the Whitefish Point Bird Observatory for excellent bird watching in spring and fall.

Meeting Place of Greatness

Michigan was born in Chippewa County. But it’s not just historians who navigate here. People travel a few hours from downstate or from across the world to discover things they can’t experience anywhere else … things here for centuries that will be here for centuries more. Visit and make your own lasting memories. Soo Locks on the St. Mary’s River

The town of Paradise is truly heavenly with gorgeous snowmobile and cross-country ski trails. Visit Sugar Island for maple syrup in spring or spectacular colors in fall. And stay for great events such as Puck-a-Palooza, Soo Locks Engineers Day or the International 500 Snowmobile Race.

Discover the spellbinding joy of being here.

When you come to the U.P., locals will often suggest seeing the Upper Tahquamenon Falls. So definitely plan to visit Tahquamenon Falls State Park, feel the cool spray, watch rainbows dance above the water … or visit when snow blankets the falls and listen to the ice crack. But these splendid falls are only one of many reasons to stay here.

Escape the heat When it’s hot where you live, you’ll find Luce County’s woods and waters cool and refreshing. If the heat’s on at work, Luce County will cool your nerves, too, no matter what the season. Here you’ll experience some of the most dazzling fall color and best hunting, fishing, dog sledding, hiking, paddling, birding, wildflowers and mushroom and berry picking you’ll find anywhere in the U.P. Motorcyclists claim it’s a dream place to ride … low traffic and fantastic scenery. ORV and ATV riders find their thrills on 200 miles of trails. Snowmobilers, cross-country skiers and snowshoers zigzag and turn across hundreds of miles of groomed trails, many beginning and ending within yards of the county’s fine hotels, B&Bs, cabins or campgrounds.

Day tripper Luce County is ideally situated as a base camp for day trips. Nearby vacation favorites include the Luce County Historical Museum and the Tahquamenon Logging Museum and Nature Study with its lumberjack memorabilia, logging contests and Paul Bunyan-style breakfasts. The Tahquamenon Falls Riverboat Tours & the Famous Toonerville Trolley includes a ride on the longest 24-gauge train in the U.S. to the Tahquamenon River and the option to take a riverboat ride to the falls (runs mid June to early October). There’s also Oswald’s Bear Ranch and chances to spend time with “Lady Luck” at nearby casinos.

Thundering Waters

You will hear the thunderous water long before you reach the lookout that brings you within feet of the Upper Tahquamenon Falls, the second-largest waterfalls east of the Mississippi. The thousands of gallons of water cascading over its 50-foot precipice every second will mesmerize you. UPPER TAHQUAMENON FALLS

But you’re also about an hour drive to Grand Sable Dunes in Grand Marais, Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, Seney National Wildlife Refuge, Kitch-iti-kipi Big Spring, Mackinac Island, the Soo Locks and lighthouses at Crisp Point, Whitefish Point and Point Iroquois.

Let your stress slip away in this place where warm smiles and great hospitality abound.

For an up-close view, take a guided kayak or canoe tour or one of the Pictured Rocks Cruises from May to mid October. Glass-bottomed boats let you see ghostly shipwrecks in the Alger Underwater Preserve. Or take a ferry to Grand Island. This island is four times bigger than Mackinac Island and offers a different perspective of the Pictured Rocks as well as thousands of primitive acres to explore on foot, bicycle or tour bus. In Alger County you can hike to more than 20 waterfalls, many of which turn to ice pillars, curtains and caves in winter (check out the Eben Ice Caves in the Rock River Canyon Wilderness). There are also 10 historic lighthouses such as AuSable Light Station. And be sure to catch the gorgeous palate of colors in Alger County’s forests in fall.

Relax or join the fun Alger County is home to some of the finest beaches, including the pristine white sand of Twelvemile Beach and Grand Sable Dunes that bookend Pictured Rocks. This popular destination also offers memorable events hosted by fun-loving people. Come for the Michigan Ice Festival (ice climbing) and Trenary Outhouse Classic race in February, for the Great Lake Sea Kayak Symposium in July and the Grand Marais Art and Music Festival in August.

City life doesn’t have to be crowded and stressful. Wilderness life doesn’t have to be isolated and serene. These two very different worlds, in fact, can live in concert with each other. And no place proves that better than Marquette County along the shores of Lake Superior.

Something for everyone The U.P.’s largest city and county of Marquette were named after Jacques Marquette, a French Jesuit missionary and explorer who lived among the Ojibwa people from 1669 until his death in 1675. A statue pays tribute to him on a rock outcropping overlooking the city. All around the statue the city teems with life year-round. Historic red sandstone buildings house unique shops, museums, galleries and delectable foods prepared by regionally acclaimed chefs. This harbor town likes to stay up late to enjoy great music, drinks and entertainment. It creates good times at the Pine Mountain and Hiawatha Music Festivals, Rotary Seafood Fest, Ore to Shore Mountain Bike Epic race, U.P. 200 Sled Dog Races, art and car shows. There are a children’s museum, massive ore freighters gracefully moving in and out of the harbor, Anatomy of a Murder self-guided tours for movie buffs and Tilden Mine Tours of a working iron ore mine. Don’t miss your chance to watch future Olympic athletes train at the United States Olympic Education Center on the campus of Northern Michigan University (short track speedskating and wrestling thrill spectators). Ishpeming introduces you to skiing and snowboarding history and Negaunee recounts stories of iron mining in its museums.

Outdoors is still our comfort zone

Cosmopolitan Life, Wilderness Style

Marquette is the U.P.’s largest city. With a strong economic and academic base, it’s culturally sophisticated. Yet it’s still a wilderness at heart. So don’t be surprised when mushers careen down its streets at midnight in mid February. In fact, expect surprises around every turn. The U.P. 200, Midnight Run Sled Dog Race, downtown Marquette

Yet for all its cosmopolitan flair, you simply can’t take the wilderness out of Marquette County. Within minutes you can bike along the shore with your children or grandchildren, fish on Lake Superior, bag waterfalls and lighthouses with your camera, spot moose and migrating birds, kayak big and small waters, hike up mountains, rock climb, ski or snowmobile. If it’s outside, it’s fun.

If you have a thirst for culture or outdoor adventure, you’ll quench it here.

Paddle There are plenty of inland rivers and lakes to kayak or canoe, but if you’re up for a long adventure, the Lake Superior Hiawatha Water Trail from Munising to Marquette to Big Bay gets high marks from sea kayakers.

Freighter watch “Whale watching” Marquette style is to see the giant ore and coal freighters unload at the Iron Ore/Presque Isle Dock. Approximately 5 to 8 million tons of iron ore are shipped from this dock annually.

COUNTIES-BARAGA

B A R A G A

There are times when you want to spend your vacation in manmade resorts elbow-to-elbow with people. And then there are other times when you want to go to the places that inspired those humanarchitected amusement and waterparks. When you long for the real thing, pack your backpack or suitcase and come to Baraga County.

Superior memories Located southeast of the Keweenaw Peninsula, Baraga County stretches along the shores of ever-changing Lake Superior and reaches down into the Ottawa National Forest. You can gather up pretty stones and occasional beach glass on Second Sand Beach or the waterfront in L’Anse. Drive the twisty dirt road up Abbaye Peninsula to see the soul-stirring vistas of Point Abbaye’s sandstone shelf, Keweenaw Bay and the distant Huron Islands. If you treasure fall color, Point Abbaye and the Skanee area will rival any “leaf peeping” place in the nation.

Inland gems As captivating as Lake Superior’s coastline is, you will also enjoy boating, fishing (ice fishing in winter) and swimming in the county’s smaller lakes. The Huron River offers some of the best steelhead fishing in the U.P. Craig Lake State Park, Michigan’s most remote state park, offers you a place to see moose, wolves, black bear and other wildlife. Hikers are never disappointed when they reach the Sturgeon River Gorge, climb to the top of Silver Mountain or Little Mountain, and make it to Mount Arvon, Michigan’s high point. Winter is a lovely season in Baraga County, best enjoyed on its 150 miles of groomed snowmobile trails. Or you can renew your spirit along the peaceful Pinery Lakes Cross-Country Ski Trail east of L’Anse or snowshoe in the L’Anse Township Park and Campground.

Treasure Hunt

Sometimes the best path to choose is not the easiest. In Baraga County that rings true again and again. But reaching places such as Canyon Falls in the rugged and remote “Grand Canyon of Michigan” is worth a half day of adventuring to bring home a lifetime of memories. Canyon Falls, Sturgeon River Gorge — the “Grand Canyon of Michigan”

When you want the company of others, on summer evenings you’ll find folks enjoying openair concerts in Covington on Tuesdays and along L’Anse’s picturesque waterfront on Thursdays. Or visit area historic sites that pay tribute to Bishop Baraga and Henry Ford and his workers.

Whatever path you choose here, you’ll be richer for having taken it.

Keweenaw County, located at the northernmost tip of Michigan, is where Lake Superior and the earth live in breathtaking harmony. Since ancient times people have come here, drawn by the native copper whose lure in the mid 1800s swelled the population by tens of thousands seeking their fortunes. You can relive memories of the Copper Rush in the county’s ghost towns, exhibits at Fort Wilkins Historic State Park or guided tours at the Delaware Mine in Delaware.

Michigan’s majesty There are many vantage points to see the splendor of this county. A hike or drive up Brockway Mountain Drive is a must, but especially in the fall when nature spatters paint then douses the old growth forests in jewel colors. As the highest scenic roadway between the Alleghenies and the Rockies, it offers spectacular sunsets and views of Lake Superior’s rocky coast a thousand feet below. If you’re a diver you can explore the numerous shipwrecks of the Keweenaw Underwater Preserve that surrounds the peninsula. Mountain bicyclists get their thrills on the IMBAdesignated Epic Trails in Copper Harbor. Paddlers are exhilarated by the Keweenaw Water Trail. ATVers crisscross the county’s 100+ miles of designated trails. Rockhounds gather agates strewn along beaches. Birders are never disappointed in the spring and fall when migrating hawks and birds wing over Copper Harbor as they follow centuries-old flight paths between Canada and South America. Winter is this county’s regal season. One of the snowiest places in the Midwest, this place is considered paradise by snowmobilers, crosscountry skiers and snowshoers. But the real daredevils meet their match at Mt. Bohemia, renowned for its merciless ski slopes.

Artisans’ inspiration

Ahhhhh ...

Some places defy words to describe them. Keweenaw County is one of those. As far north as you can go in Michigan, you’ll be rewarded for taking the time to get there with picturesque harbor towns, hauntingly rugged coastlines and stories of our copper mining past that invigorate your spirit. This place stays in your heart forever. COPPER HARBOR FROM ATOP BROCKWAY MOUNTAIN

This land of waterfalls and lighthouses also attracts artisans whose galleries spring up in the county’s quaint harbor towns. Some artists create masterpieces for the palate with jars of thimbleberry jam, fresh-caught fish and hot-fromthe-oven pasties prepared throughout the region.

Come satiate your hunger for serenity and adventure.

ONTONAGON

Whatever your interests are, from hiking to history, fishing to hunting, snowshoeing to snowmobiling, or waterfall bagging to mining, you’ll refresh your inner spirit here. Ontonagon County is home to the Porcupine Mountains, 1,200 miles of free-running streams and rivers, and pristine Lake Superior beaches. You can also enjoy the mighty Lake Gogebic, plus dozens of smaller inland lakes and thousands of acres of virgin forest.

Natural high points When you visit, locals will direct you to Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park. Not that you can ever explore in your lifetime all 60,000 acres, but do go up to the Lake of the Clouds Overlook, one of the most scenic spots in Michigan. Another “Porkies” must-see is the 40foot high Summit Peak Observation Tower. At 1,958 feet above sea level it is one of the highest points in Michigan and offers vast vistas of oldgrowth and virgin forests (gorgeous in fall), the Copper Peak Ski Flying Hill near Ironwood and on a clear day, even the distant Apostle Islands on Lake Superior. Downhill skiers will enjoy the park’s slopes, especially moving off the shoulders and into the trees.

Historic diversions History buffs will want to tour the Ontonagon Harbor Lighthouse (1866). Or take the selfguided trails to old mining sites on the Union Mine Scenic Trail and Nonesuch Mine location. You can enter the adit of the old Carp Lake Mine. Explore the Minesota (yes, that’s how it’s spelled) Mine site near Rockland, once the most productive copper mine in the U.S. Or visit the Old Victoria Restoration site where mining days are brought back to life. Another U.P. high point, literally, is the Victoria Hydro on the West Branch of the Ontonagon, the highest hydroelectric dam in the Midwest. And before you go home, decide for yourself if the “Paulding Mystery Light” is real or imagined.

Sky-High Serenity

Often popular resort areas are crowded with people. Not here. At any given time, there are probably fewer people visiting Ontonagon County than living on a city block.This openness and quiet takes some getting used to, but once you do, it cleanses you from life’s stresses. Lake of the Clouds, Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park

Rediscover yourself in this wilderness. “The highlight [of our trip] had to be the perfect sunset and the appearance of the Northern Lights on Saturday night. It just doesn’t get any better than that.” Kathy and Duane, Minneapolis, MN

This is your wilderness getaway. Escape to the Gogebic Iron Range that made iron mining so important to this area. Lace up your boots and explore the million-acre Ottawa National Forest or enter the western gateway to the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park. Because Gogebic County is within the Central Time Zone, you’ll have lots of daylight to fit in all your adventuring.

Where water comes to play Chart your course through the crystal-clear waters that surround you, from pristine Lake Superior to inland lakes, rivers and an abundance of waterfalls.

More than you imagined In winter, downhill skiers and snowboarders experience why we’re called “Big Snow Country” at renowned resorts: Indianhead Mountain Resort in Wakefield and Blackjack Ski Resort and Big Powderhorn Mountain in Bessemer. Crosscountry skiers glide down serene trails that weave throughout the county. And snowmobilers can zoom down 175 miles of groomed trails. To see even more, brave the Copper Peak & Adventure Ride from mid June through Labor Day. This 810-foot chair lift and 18-story elevator to the top of the only International Ski Flying facility in the Western Hemisphere will show you 2,500 square miles of the Lake Superior Basin.

Westernmost Wilderness

With its boundless, unspoiled wilderness sprinkled with expansive waterways, Gogebic County lets you unplug from the ceaseless distractions of daily life. Located as far west as you can go in Michigan, it is within a few hours drive of cities in northern Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin, giving you and your family a perfect path to reconnect with nature.

And when you want to share the fun with others, come to Ironwood for a performance at the restored Historic Ironwood Theatre or during Bessemer’s 4th of July festivities or Pumpkinfest – two of the finest celebrations in the Midwest.

Off the beaten Path Gogebic (pronounced “go-GIB-ick” or “go-GEEB-ick”) is Ojibwa for “where trout rising to the surface make rings in the water.”

For a more relaxing time, canoe, kayak or fish on rivers or inland lakes across the county.

schoolcraft

Everyone needs to take more time to play and Schoolcraft County makes it so easy to enjoy family and friends. Located along the sandy shores of Lake Michigan, the county stretches north past Indian Lake (the second-largest inland lake in the U.P.), almost to Lake Superior. From misty sunrise to constellation-glimmering night, this is a natural playground for the wave wader to the most avid outdoors enthusiast.

Animal kingdom You don’t have to go far from the charming shops of historic downtown Manistique to find the wild side of Schoolcraft County. A nearly 2-mile boardwalk takes you along Lake Michigan with its abundance of shore birds. Your walk will end at Manistique East Breakwater Light and fishing pier where you can cast your line for steelhead and salmon in the spring and fall or watch some of the most stunning sunsets all year. Or choose to go north from Lake Michigan and explore thousands of acres teeming with wildlife. It’s enthralling to watch otters slide down riverbanks, osprey soar across azure skies, or to spy elusive wolves, minks or beavers. Hike, paddle or ride an ATV in spring, summer and fall. Cross-country ski, snowshoe or snowmobile on trail systems from Indian Lake State Park to the Hiawatha National Forest. And while every season uses a palette of colors, fall drenches the landscape in the most brilliant golds and reds imaginable.

Bragging rights Ripley’s “Believe It or Not” once featured the county’s amazing “Siphon Bridge,” which once crossed the Manistique River below water level. Or visit the Bishop Baraga Shrine and First Church historical marker to learn about the “Snowshoe Priest.” Read a marker that tells about the ill-fated “Christmas Tree Ship” whose last port-of-call was Manistique. Or join the fun at the county’s delightful music, classic car and food festivals.

Nature’s Playground

Like all of the U.P., Schoolcraft County has bragging rights to untamed shorelines, verdant forests and hundreds of inland waters. But only here can you hike, paddle or drive through the amazing Seney National Wildlife Refuge with its wildflowers, loons, black bear, eagles, moose and more. SENEY NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE

mackinac bridge Mackinac county/st. ignace Considered by many as the “8th wonder of the world,” the Mackinac Bridge is the longest suspension bridge in the western hemisphere with 7,400 feet of 4-lane roadway suspended in the air over the beautiful Straits of Mackinac. That’s 950 feet longer than the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. This vital transportation link, which unites Michigan’s two peninsulas, is responsible for stimulating tourism and economic growth in northern Michigan. Total length of the bridge, including its approaches, is approximately 5 miles of 34 water piers. Its two main towers extend 552 feet above the water and go down 210 feet below the surface of the water to bedrock. Enjoy views of Lake Michigan to the west and Lake Huron to the east. Beautiful Mackinac Island and its Grand Hotel are in plain view from the Mackinac Bridge. Each Labor Day morning the Mackinac Bridge Authority hosts the famous Labor Day Bridge Walk, which attracts thousands to walk across the 5-mile stretch. Drive across the Mackinac Bridge during the day and watch the Great Lakes freighters cross under the awesome structure or view it at night when the “Mighty Mac” lights up the Straits of Mackinac.

With a spectacular sunset, historic landmarks and a tasty meal all wrapped into one fantastic evening, the Soo Locks Dinner Cruise is an attraction not to be missed. Pass through the Soo Locks and explore the Canadian and U.S. shorelines, all while dining on a five-course, buffetstyle meal that includes hors d’oeuvres, two entrees, a variety of salads and side dishes, fresh fruit and dessert. A beverage is also included and cash bar is available for those who prefer to watch the sunset with a glass of wine in hand. As you enjoy your meal, the captain will guide your boat through the locks, where it will be raised 21 feet to Lake Superior levels. This dinner scenery is ever-changing, making every moment of the meal a special event. Regularly scheduled dinner cruises occur June 18-Oct. 5 and reservations are required. Additional departures may also be scheduled starting in mid-May through Oct. 15, so please inquire by phone at 800/432-6301 or 906/632-6301.

The two longest locks in the world are part of this National Historic Site. The new Poe Lock is the largest lock on the St. Lawrence Seaway and the only lock that can handle the super freighters which are 1,000 feet long and 105 feet wide. A colorful history surrounds the world famous Soo Locks which form a passage for deep draft ships around the rapids of the St. Mary’s River. Before white men came to the area, the Ojibwa Indians, who lived nearby, portaged their canoes around the “Bawating” (rapids) to reach Lake Superior. The Soo Locks have been operating since 1855. By visiting Sault Ste. Marie you can view the tremendous St. Mary’s Rapids, which are located next to the Soo Locks. The natural barrier of the rapids made necessary the construction of the Locks project known as the St. Mary’s Fall Canal. With the opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway in 1959, foreign flag vessels known to Great Lakes sailors as “salties” are now very much in evidence, giving the Soo Locks all the international flavor of its sister locks at the Panama Canal. The Visitor Viewing Area includes observation decks so close to the big ships that you feel you can touch them. For additional information contact Sault Convention & Visitors Bureau, 2650 I-75 Business Spur, Sault Ste. Marie, MI 49783. Phone 906/632-3366 or 800/MI-SAULT.

keweenaw water trail keweenaw/houghton www.keweenaw.info www.kwta.org One of the best ways to enjoy the peacefulness and natural splendor of this area is from the seat of a canoe or kayak, and the Keweenaw Water Trail allows paddlers of all skill levels to do just that. Along the trail, they experience the history and scenic beauty of Lake Superior and the Portage Waterway, with a marked and mapped route running well over 100 miles. Access sites, camping, both primitive and developed, and other services are available along the Water Trail, as well as all the amenities a tourist location can offer when the trail goes through some of the U.P.’s favorite small towns. The unique geography of the Keweenaw Peninsula affords one uncommon feature — the ability to start and stop in the same place without backtracking. An average paddler could leave one location, and, after a number of days of enjoying the Keweenaw, be back where he started. Trips of any duration can be enjoyed in the clear, deep waters of Lake Superior, the seclusion of quiet inland lakes, or the protection of the Portage Waterway.

Look out over Lake Superior as the setting sun paints the wide expanse of Keweenaw sky. Watch as a freighter silently cruises the waters of the peninsula.

These are some of the reasons Brockway Mountain Drive has consistently been selected as one of the most scenic drives in the Midwest. Just 9-1/2 miles long, it offers superb views and some of the best the Keweenaw has to offer — in all the seasons. Summer offers opportunities to explore the Brockway Mountain Nature Sanctuary.

Keweenaw National Historical Park was established on Oct. 27, 1992, to commemorate the heritage of copper mining on the Keweenaw Peninsula — its mines, its machinery and its people.
