Summit Peak Tower Trail

Porcupine Mountains

Cross Country Ski Summit Peak Tower Trail Hike Summit Peak Tower Trail

Trail Distance:

0.5 Miles



This trail provides an opportunity to visit Summit Peak, at 1,958 feet, the highest point in the park. A 40-foot observation tower provides an outstanding view of the park as well as surrounding area. As Michigan's highest viewing area, Wisconsin, Minnesota, the Apostle Islands, and Copper Peak are a few of the sights that can be seen on a clear day. A viewing deck on the way up to the summit provides a panorama of the Little Carp River valley and ranks as one of the best views of the park.

Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park

Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park (60,000 acres) is one of the few remaining large wilderness areas in the Midwest. Towering virgin timber, secluded lakes, and miles of wild rivers and streams make a visit to the "Porkies" a trip to remember. Black bears are common in the Porkies

Areas of attraction within the Porkies include Lake of the Clouds (ADA accessible viewing area), Summit Peak observation tower, and the scenic Presque Isle River corridor which hosts the states second largest waterfalls. Join us in August for the annual Music Festival hosted by the Friends of the Porkies. For further information about this event please visit Friends of the Porkies Festival webpage.
