Great hiking trip!

We had a great hiking trip. Our first night we spent on the escarpment trail. Unreal to wake up in your hammock to this view. Bugs were really bad at LOC site but the escarpment and Little carp/LAke superior hikes were not bad and worth the bug battle.

Beautiful at peak fall color!

I did a 3 day/2 night hike during peak color, starting at the Lake Superior Trailhead. I was warned the Lake Superior trail was muddy when I checked in, and the ranger was not joking - I was grateful to have trekking poles to help balance on logs, branches, roots and rocks to try to keep my boots…

Beautiful and Accessible Backpacking

Great for beginning backpackers and those who want a longer trip, the Porcupine Mountains offer 100+ miles of trails. Can make 2-3 day loops, or do in and out hikes. Beautiful views, old growth forests, waterfalls and rivers. Starting with the 2018 season, the backcountry campsites must be reserved…

  • Sunrise on the Big Carp River Trail
