Mount Arvon, Michigan Update…
Club Liasions Director Stony Burk informs us that “The logging has been completed at and around Mount Arvon at the Michigan highpoint. The road and berm were restored to original condition. A bit of a path was created to provide an outlook from the summit.” (Photo by Tracey Barrett)
According to Tracey Barrett at Baraga County Convention & Visitors Bureau, “The trees this year were remarkable and we were busy because of it.”
You may remember Tracey as one of the three 2008 “Paul Zumwalt Award” winners awarded for her efforts in perserving their State Highpoint.
Other Privately Owned Highpoints
Indiana – Be careful about the kids and farm equipment.
Kansas – The owners have created a nice park. Be respectful!
Louisiana – You’re crossing private property as you walk past the church into the woods
Michigan – The highpoint is owned by Meade Paper. They have spent thousands of dollars to grade the road and want you to park by a pond about a half mile from the summit.
Mississippi – The highpoint is privately owned and there’s a cluster of antenna on the summit.
Nebraska – This privately owned highpoint is requesting $5 donations. They also do not wish you to hike across its fields to the Colorado-Wyoming-Nebraska Tri-State marker. Respect the buffalo!!!
