The hike was a bit long but worth it. The tower view was great! Made for good picture taking! Loved the little chipmunks running around!

The tower in a gorgeous place to look out for miles. I'm sure the view is stunning in the fall with the colors. Thinking of hiking to a cabin in the future. Love the Porkies. Great hiking without having to go all the way out west.

From the parking area, it is a short half mile hike up to the top of Summit Peak. Along the way, you will see breathtaking views of the Porcupine Mountain Range. Be sure to stop at Summit Peak while visiting the Porkies.

It was a bit of a hike up hill and a good number of steps but so worth it! The view was spectacular!

I can only imagine how beautiful this place is in the Fall. The peak is amazing. What a view. I was surprised at the amount of tourist on a cold and rainy day.

Took an evening hike to the top of the peak four evenings ago while visiting the park-- easy drive to the small parking area, then a brisk half mile hike to the top. View from the top of the entire park, with a 360 degree panorama, including Lake Superior. Not a great view, like at Lake of the Clouds, but... More

I'm not sure this is worth the walk. There are somany beautiful places to hike to in the park that if you want to miss something, miss this. For some folks it will be a difficult walk, especially if you're older and not used to climbing. Glad we did it, but there's so much park to see we will not... More

Easy hike from the parking lot to the summit, with a cute tower you can climb for great views. Go there and BE QUIET - you will see many birds, squirrels, chipmunks, and more.

LOTS of stairs but worth the climb. This is a highlight of the Stae Park along withLake in the Clouds and Presque Isle Waterfalls.
