Sorry to say but Mount Arvon’s lookout point leaves a lot to be desired. The view is hardly spectacular. Feels like you’re sitting in the middle of the woods vs a lookout point for the highest point in MI. Not to mention the ride to...More

I visited this site as a part of a four state trip to hike the highpoint in each state. Getting to the access road is pretty easy then the rest of the way is approximately 8.4 miles of dirt road. It is passable but you...More

We took our four kids here to commemorate our son's 13th birthday. It was our first visit to this site and our first visit to any state high point. We came from Marquette and took some back roads. I wouldn't go that way again. I'd...More

You can drive near to the top and take a short hike the rest of the way. Leave your name in the log book, along with visitors from around the world!

The view from Michigans highest point are breathtaking. The trip up is half the adventure. Road is narrow and step in places. With trees on both sides it would be a challenge to meet another vehicle. Beautiful falls on the way.

We rented a cabin on Huron Bay and thought we'd go to Mt. Arvon. If you want to go there it would be best to have a four wheel drive vehicle or an ATV or UTV. We were there once before, about 12 years ago...More

Took awhile but worth it. Well marked trail. Gets smaller and steeper but made it with my Chevy Equinox. Good view north toward Lake Superior.

When I looked at the first review I initially thought it was tongue in cheek. I did the dirt road in a small two-wheel drive, low clearance vehicle, during a deluge and had no problem whatsoever. The grade is not steep at all, but that...More
