I SOOOO wanted to visit Bare Bluffs a few years ago when we were up there. The road out at that time was far to rough for our car so I'm excited to hear it's been "improved." Just another reason to get back up to the Keweenaw ASAP. Oh, and nice page also:)
thanks :D hopefully now you will have better directions how to get there! p.s. i just threw together a "geology of the keweenaw" page--i'd be curious to hear what you had to say...
Thanks for posting all this great info, looks like the best big lake view in the Keweenaw. However, ever since I got stuck in the mud on a remote road in Utah I am freaked out by dicey roads, can you elaborate on the road conditions any more? Like is it really only an issue when it's muddy or is it always a rough road where bottoming out (with a passenger car) is a danger? I figure I can always just hike the road if it's that bad.
thanks for your comments :)
the road, in my estimation, is only a real problem when muddy. assuming the conditions are dry, you should have no problem getting back to bare bluff. however, like i stated on the page, in spring time and after lots of heavy rain (which we haven't had at all this summer) the road becomes a big mud pit. if you were to head there this fall some time you should have no problem at all. the road does get worse beyond bare bluff as you head to montreal falls though, but not bad enough to deter you if it's dry. there are also a few spots where clearance has the potential to be an issue, but i was fine in my mercury sable, so i would think most cars can do it.
hope that helps!
Yeah that helps a lot. I would be there in early October so I guess I should be okay. Surprised to hear you haven't gotten much rain up there, it has been a wet (although not real stormy) summer in the lower.
