We arrived in Baraga, MI on June 19, 2004. It was a cool, dry day. We drove through L’Anse, following the lake shore.
At the Zion Luthern Church we turned off the main road, on to a gravel road and followed the sporadic blue arrows. After several miles we came to the gravel pit and drove through it. On the far side the road forks and there were no arrows, so naturally we followed the wrong one. STAY TO THE LEFT. There is a small bridge to cross. It is strong enough to support a vehicle.
From this point the road turns rough as it begins to climb toward the top. If the road is dry you can make it in a two wheel drive vehicle, but I wouldn’t try it in a car. This is a logging road and we needed the extra ground clearance that a truck provided. It actually was fun.
After a few miles we reached the parking area and it was a short hike to the top. The view is non-existent because of the trees. Make sure to sign the book provided by the Scouts.
