When you consider landscapes in Michigan, towering hills might not be the first formations that come to mind. After all, our state is largely known for its gorgeous beaches, beautiful forests, and stunning sand dunes. But there’s one spot here in the Great Lakes State that will take you on an entirely new adventure throughout Michigan’s natural splendor – and you’ll soon feel like you’re high above the clouds.
Mount Arvon is situated within the Huron Mountains in beautiful L’anse Township.
With a peak elevation of 1,979 feet, this breathtaking spot is the highest natural point in the entire state of Michigan. Get ready for a truly uplifting outdoor experience.
To visit this unforgettable peak, make your way to the community of L’anse and venture up a rustic but beautiful gravel roadway toward the top of Mount Arvon.
You’ll want to be sure your car is equipped for handling rough terrain. While many cars can make the trek, you might not want to bring your small luxury vehicle up the hillside.
During your eleven mile drive, you’ll appreciate plenty of greenery and forested splendor. This is Michigan’s nature at its very best and most fascinating.
Upon reaching the end of your drive, you’ll find a sign notifying you that you’ve reached Michigan’s highest point. Be sure to snap a photo for your scrapbook!
If you’re lucky, clear weather will allow for an incredible view from atop Mount Arvon. Gaze out upon the beauty of Lake Superior in all its brilliant blueness.
Take a deep breath as you admire this one-of-a-kind locale. No matter how many times you’ve visited, a trip to Mount Arvon will make you feel like you’re on top of the world.
