Fall Color

It's time to visit the Lake of the Clouds and the Porcupine Mountains for a fantastic fall color tour.... Colors are peaking.... #fallcolorphotos #porcupinemountains #westernupFall Color Update: Fog, rain, and wind dominated the day today obscuring the view of the Lake of the Clouds. Photos show good color, however, and it was noted that the leaves are staying on the trees. With the weather improving for this weekend, although getting colder, the colors should be beautiful throughout the Lake of the Clouds scenic area and most areas of the park. High waves on Lake Superior and high rivers and streams will make crossing them dangerous, however, waterfalls are roaring and great for viewing. Call ahead to confirm your plans and park conditions @ 906.885.5275, ext 0. #midnr #miparks #puremichigan #fall #color ... See MoreSee Less

Fall Color

It looks like THIS WEEKEND - October 7 & 8 - will be the first weekend of 2017 where you will be able to find some good peak color in the Western U.P. The routes in the interior of the Western U.P. will likely have the best peak color. The fall color is getting much stronger at Lake of the Clouds and along the Lake Superior shore. Look for good peak color along those routes starting sometime next week... #fallcolorphotos #porcupinemountains #westernupFall color update:
Here are the shots from Lake of the Clouds today. Color is progressing, not at peak yet. The first 4 photos are from Lake of the Clouds. I'm also attaching a couple of pics (the last 2 photos) from Summit Peak yesterday. There is more color at Summit Peak. #midnr #miparks #puremichigan #fallcolor #lakeoftheclouds

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.)

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 — a 360-foot copper-bearing volcanic outcrop — 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.

2018 Adventure Ride

Open Every day (Monday through Sunday): 10:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. from Memorial Day weekend to mid-October (weather dependent)

  • Adults – $20
  • Students 14 and under – $8
  • Children under 5 – Free
  • Credit cards accepted

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.

The chairlift rides will be offered over four weekends in the fall. (Schedule may change, call ahead for latest info.)

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

Cost is $7 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.

“Ride 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. “Bring a camera.”

Here are some details on the park’s additional fall activities:

Interpretive Programs

Interpretive programs are offered Thursdays through Sundays until Oct. 4. Programs featured have included “Guided Bear Den Hike,” “Agate Hunting,” “Gray Wolf Hike,” “History of the Porcupine Mountains,” “Beach Crafts” and “Lake of the Clouds Guided Hike.”

It's time to visit the Lake of the Clouds and the Porcupine Mountains for a fantastic fall color tour.... Colors are peaking.... #fallcolorphotos #porcupinemountains #westernupFall Color Update: Fog, rain, and wind dominated the day today obscuring the view of the Lake of the Clouds. Photos show good color, however, and it was noted that the leaves are staying on the trees. With the weather improving for this weekend, although getting colder, the colors should be beautiful throughout the Lake of the Clouds scenic area and most areas of the park. High waves on Lake Superior and high rivers and streams will make crossing them dangerous, however, waterfalls are roaring and great for viewing.

Finally, looks like a PEAK COLOR weekend for the Western U.P. of Michigan... You should be able to find good color along many sections of inland routes... There is less color on the shore line routes near Lake Superior... The fall color along those routes should be peaking next week... #fallcolorphotos #westernupGet up here this weekend to see our fall colors!!! These were taken today on our trip back from Ironwood!!!

It looks like THIS WEEKEND - October 7 & 8 - will be the first weekend of 2017 where you will be able to find some good peak color in the Western U.P. The routes in the interior of the Western U.P. will likely have the best peak color. The fall color is getting much stronger at Lake of the Clouds and along the Lake Superior shore. Look for good peak color along those routes starting sometime next week... #fallcolorphotos #porcupinemountains #westernupFall color update:
Here are the shots from Lake of the Clouds today. Color is progressing, not at peak yet. The first 4 photos are from Lake of the Clouds. I'm also attaching a couple of pics (the last 2 photos) from Summit Peak yesterday. There is more color at Summit Peak. #midnr #miparks #puremichigan #fallcolor #lakeoftheclouds

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.

Discovery Channel video of Tao Berman shooting through the falls during spring runoff in a kayak.

 

Agate Falls – Western U.P.

Large beautiful waterfall that is visited by many people. Located just off of M-28 The short hiking trail is well-marked and easy to find.

Directions: Go 6.5 miles East of Bruce Crossing on Hwy M-28. You will see a sign on the Hwy at the Bridge. Park in the parking area on the south. Follow the well marked trail under the bridge to the waterfall.
