Mountain bikers can ride 21 miles of designated mountain biking trails overlooking Lake Superior and majestic old-growth forests.
Summer is also a great time to canoe or kayak on Lake Superior and the Ontonagon River. Stroll a sandy beach and find agates polished by Lake Superior’s waves. Take a tour of the area’s lighthouses, historic copper mines and Victoria Dam. When evening comes, head to the beach—there’s no better way to spend a summer night than sitting around a campfire and listening to the waves under a canopy of stars.
Exploring the lush green forests and wild waterways of the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness is like taking a step back in time. However, area motels, cabins, inns and resorts provide you with all the modern conveniences you need for a fun, comfortable and relaxing fall getaway.
