Porcupine Mts-Escarpment Trail
The Escarpment Trail, located in the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park, is one of the most picturesque hiking trails in all of Michigan. It combines a high rocky bluff and alpine-life vistas with views of the park's interior including the Upper Carp River Valley and Lake of the Clouds. The trail provides the unique experience of viewing the lake from several different angles, rather than just at one of the visitor viewpoints. The trail is point-to-point, so you if you plan to complete the entire trail from start to finish, you must travel 4.3 miles in and 4.3 miles back, however it can be accessed at three different trailheads if you are looking for a shorter journey.
