Mt. Arvon is Michigan’s highest point standing at 1,979.238 feet above sea level. It is located in the rugged backwoods of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula in beautiful Baraga County, approx. 27 driving miles from L‘Anse, Michigan. A 1/2 of a mile from the top there is a is a beaver pond that you have to check for Moose. During the rainy season, the roads become muddy and are often unfit for passenger cars.
In 2017 the hiking trail to the top of Mt. Arvon was created by a couple of avid hikers. Thanks to Weyerhaeuser (the landowner) you now can drive within 2 miles from the top and hike the rest!
The trail is marked with blue diamonds painted on the trees with a few other sign-age for guidance. The trail takes you through the untouched forest of nature and by a couple of breathtaking waterfalls.
