Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park

Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park is Michigan's largest area of undeveloped wilderness. The Park was established in 1945 and later designated as a Wilderness Area. The Porcupine Mountains consist of a series of undulating, irregular ranges whose slopes are covered with stands of virgin forest of the hardwood-hemlock type, with maple, birch, and basswood on the upper slopes through hemlock mixtures on the lower areas. Nestled within these ridges are the beautiful Lake of the Clouds and Mirror Lake. From these lakes flow the Big and Little Carp rivers down deep cut gorges. These rivers rush through a series of rapids and falls to Lake Superior.
It is 92 square miles big, with virgin forest, scenic waterfalls, rugged Lake Superior shore line, remote rustic cabins, 87 miles of hiking trails, and virtually no roads.
