Beautiful, scenic vista of the Upper Peninsula await the hearty souls willing to climb the 250 plus boulder strewn steps to the top of Silver Mountain. The stairs are a rugged climb, and the site offers few amenities, so come prepared. Silver Mountain offers excellent opportunities to view migrating birds of prey (raptors). In May-June and again in September-October, watch broad winged and red-tail hawks soaring on the strong updrafts. Small sharp-skinned hawks and American kestrels are also common here.
