  • Expansive! Beautiful views. Minimal crowds. Trails could be better marked. We did the Escarpment Trail... should have been 4 miles. 6.5 miles later we found the main black topped road and three...

  • This is an awesome place to go for serious hikers. However, the overlook is very accessible to almost everyone. The lookout tower is a short but steep hike with many stairs at the top. It shouldn't...

  • There are so many places to visit in Michigan. Amazing place to visit, such a beautiful place during fall colors. Definitely recommended trip in Michigan.
  • I have backpacked here a couple of times. It is my favorite place so far. Lake of the Clouds is an amazing view. The Escarpment and Big Carp trails are breath taking.
  • Little Carp Cabin is a very easy 1 hour hike in and right on the river & Lake Superior.
  • The hike from Lake of the Clouds to Mirror Lake is tough (for us in shape young adults) the view is absolutely gorgeous and worth it if you dare take the challenge!
  • This is a really beautiful spot to view fall colors! There is lots of parking & a wheelchair ramp to get up the the main viewpoint. There are lots of hiking trails a long the way. You need to pay CASH to get in. They don't have electricity so cannot accept cards. It's definitely worth the drive!
