“Beautiful Sunset”

Brockway Mountain Drive
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 14, 2013

There is a parking area not far from the town of Copper Harbor where you can walk just a short distance to an overlook of the town and the Lake. The drive is very pretty, and the view from the top of the mountain is gorgeous. We were there at sunset, and it was a beautiful sight.
It's also a great place to make a cell call, which is just about impossible down in the town of Copper Harbor.

We drove up from our stay in Calumet to see these awesome sights. A group of us drove up to see the sights and were not disappointed. The first small landing you come to is worth the stop because you can see the beautiful harbor sights including the Copper Harbor Lighthouse (kind of distant). Don't be intimidated by the steep and rather bumpy at parts road and make sure to go all the way to the top! We went later at night to see the sunset and it ended up being too foggy for that but the views were still amazing with the fog cover. Beautiful hills with forest cover, cliffs and lakes - enough gorgeous nature to take your breath away! Photos couldn't really capture the Pure Michigan view.
There's a building and a random one-person structure with a office chair at the top but the building was closed when we were there.
Don't forget to bring bug spray, especially if you go at night like we did.

Breathtaking view of Copper Harbor, definitely a must see when you visit Copper Harbor/Fort Wilkins. Do not take trailers up, very steep incline..

Great location to see a sunset. You'll have a good panoramic view of the lake and shore. Take a jacket as it gets cool in the evening. Leave early enough to stop at the other drive outs on the way up to the top.

The view is beautiful! There is so much scenery, it was my favorite thing to see in copper harbor. It is definitely a vacation must! I believe the tallest point was 1200? ft above sea level. Magnificent view of the mountains!
