Michigan High Point Hike
Highpoint 10. Michigan, Mount Arvon, 1979 ft, 5/24/03
Used Winger's book for guidance. Had a little trouble with the road map, after the gravel pit. Zumwalt's book contains a topographical/road map which was helpful.
There is a 12+ mile drive on gravel or unmaintained roads. The last 4 miles have big, oil pan killer rocks in the middle of the road. A friend suggested using a rental vehicle for this road. Allow plenty of time. Bad mosquitoes today.
There are no rest rooms along the gravel road, at the 'trail head', or at the summit.
Benchmark is shown below.
