Fall color update:

Not a lot of color right now. This shot was taken 9/27 at Lake of the Clouds. There are some pockets where there is more color. Maybe 25% fall color with pockets as much as 40%. Too foggy today to get a shot of Lake of the Clouds.

Copper Peak Ski Jump and Adventure Ride – Western U.P.

The Copper Peak Adventure Ride lets visitors rise to the same heights as the athletes who have flown down the hill in years past. After an 800-foot chair lift ride to the crest of the hill β€” a 360-foot copper-bearing volcanic outcrop β€” visitors take a thrilling 18-story elevator to the main observation deck. From there, the truly fearless can walk an additional 8 stories to the top starting gate.

Once at the top, visitors can enjoy the highest, most awe-inspiring, unobstructed vista in the Midwest overlooking over 2500 square miles, 3 states and even Canada on a clear day. The Copper Peak Adventure Ride is an opportunity not to be missed!

For the most up-to-date Adventure Ride information and/or weather closures, please visit our Facebook page here.

2020 Adventure Ride

2020 Adventure Ride Hours of Operation:
June 11 – Mid-October:
10:00 a.m – 4:30 p.m.

Open Every day (Monday through Sunday)
Weather Dependent

10/20/2020 UPDATE: Important Update: We had planned to be open through October 25th this season, however, we have had a change of plans. Today was unfortunately the last day of the 2020 Adventure Ride season at COPPER PEAK 😭

Due to snow and very low temps in the forecast, we are closing early. We cannot have visitors on the tower with any sort of ice or snow due to hazardous conditions.

10/7/2020 UPDATE: Unfortunately, we had some bad luck for the end of the season 😭 A part on our chairlift needs to be repaired and will not be able to be repaired until after we close for the 2020 Adventure Ride season on October 25th. However, we will still be staying open for visitors to take in the gorgeous view from the top of the tower. Tickets will be discounted (Adults: $16, Kids $6)

COVID-19 UPDATE: All visitors are REQUIRED to wear a face covering in the chalet gift shop and in the elevator to keep our employees safe beginning Monday, July 13, 2020. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided for you. Thank you!

Fall Color Chair Lift Rides - Porcupine Mountain Ski Area

Contact the state park at 906-885-5275 for more details.

The roughly 59,000-acre state park managed by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources is Michigan’s largest and is situated in Ontonagon and Gogebic counties.

β€œA visit to the Porcupine Mountains offers some of the best fall colors anywhere,” said Bob Wild, DNR interpreter at the park. β€œTake part in the many fall activities being offered and take home some great memories.”

Cost is $10 per person. Children ages 12 and younger ride free.

The ski hill at the park is located a half-mile west of the Union Bay Campground along Ontonagon County Road 107.

β€œRide the chairlift to the top of the ski hill and either hike or ride the lift back down for some great scenery overlooking Lake Superior,” Wild said. β€œBring a camera.”

Fall Color Photo Tour – Upper Peninsula – October 1 – 4, 2015

The Fall Color Season is off to a slow start for the year 2015. The record warm weather during September has moved the Fall Color Season by 10 to 14 days (that’s two weeks) in the Upper Peninsula. Nevertheless, we toured some of our favorite spots in the U.P. to see the early fall color emerging this year. Here are some photos of our adventure. (Look for some good peak color in the Upper Peninsula next weekend, October 10 & 11, 2015.)

Bessemer Pumpkin Festival – September 28 – October 1, 2017


Welcome to the 39th Annual Bessemer Pumpkin Festival.

ALL EVENTS ARE STILL TENTATIVE AND MAY CHANGE

The Bessemer Pumpkinfest Committee is proud to sponsor this year’s event where you’ll find activities for the entire family.

Festivities begin Thursday evening, September 28, with the “Business After 5” social atΒ  the Pit Stop Bar & Grill. This event is co-sponsored by the First National Bank of Bessemer, The Leather & Gift Shop, & Pit Stop Bar & Grill. Also starting Thursday evening are the 50/50 raffle & poker run, and geo-caching.

The Bessemer Historical Society opens its doors from 1 – 4 p.m. on Friday and 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Saturday. Stop by and see the many displays depicting Bessemer’s history and heritage

On Friday evening from 6 to 11 p.m., we are offering FREE carnival rides for all ages, food, & games. There’ll be “dancin in the streets,” at least on Sophie Street, from 7 – 10 p.m. with music provided by a local DJ.

If you’re looking for some adventure, take the short drive to Copper Peak and enjoy their Adventure Ride. They will be open from 10 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. all weekend. Also, helicopter rides will be taking off from the field east of Steiger’s Home Center from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Saturday.

The Poker Run begins on Friday with drawings at midnight on Friday & Saturday at the Pit Stop Bar & Grill.

On Saturday, September 30, begin your day with a hearty Pumpkin Pancake Breakfast at the St. Sebastian School (regular pancakes are available too). The St. Sebastian Knights of Columbus fire up the griddle from 7 – 11 a.m.

After breakfast, the entire family can spend the day downtown with special activities for kids (and adults who want to act like kids). Vendor and food booths will be all along Sophie Street from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with entertainment throughout the day.

Sophie Street activities include a costume kiddies parade, carnival, ventriloquist Dave Parker and Skippy performances, balloon characters and face painting by Happy Dayz the Clown & Twinklz, pumpkin bowling, pony rides and petting zoo, and a number of contests. Please see the Contests page for more information.

Western U.P. Fall Color Progression

Here is a handy collection of photos showing how the fall color progresses in the Western Upper Peninsula. (Click On Photo To Enlarge)

 

Bond Falls – Western U.P.

Bond Falls is one of those “best kept secret” spots on the Western Upper Peninsula that you want to make sure you do not miss.

This beautiful water fall is located on the middle branch of the Ontonagon River near Paulding.

Although it does not get the “press” of more famous U.P. water falls, Bond Falls has a large following of admirers and had even been part of a calendar as one of the most scenic natural places in the world!

Superior Falls – Western U.P.


Superior Falls – Extremely beautiful gorge. Access is moderately easy. Directions: From Hwy US 2 in Ironwood. Go North on Lake Rd. This is approximately 25 mile drive. You will see a marker on the road that says Superior Falls. Turn north (right) on that gravel road. Continue down the small hill to the parking lot. Walk down the road to the River Mouth and Lake Superior. Then walk upstream 1/3 mile to Superior Falls. Superior Dam Falls is a little further upstream. If you have time, stop at Little Girls Point Park for a picnic. You will see this park on Lake Road on your way to the Falls.
