Great page on this Midwest Summit. The second highest summit in Michigan still needs a page!

Finally! An excellent page about the Porkies. I was hoping someone who'd spent time in that area would post a good, informative page featuring those peaks. Great job.

Great page on range of summits that are lesser known but are no less pretty. Pictures do good in making this page.

Very well done page. It always helps a page if the one who puts it up signs the summit log, that would be my only recommendation on this nice page.

Good page: The topo coordinates for Summit Mountain (considered the 3rd highest in Michigan) are:

lat = 46.4499

lon = -87.6301



However, the given elevation is 1873 ft, not 1958 ft. For some reason, the topo map is partly blacked out.



The topo coordinates for Government Peak are:



lat = 46.7833333333333

lon = -89.7308333333333

Thanks so much!

I hiked this itinerary September 9-12, 2012 and enjoyed it immensely. We got there on a Saturday night camped at Presque Isle (you can get backcountry permits there too). We hiked in to Lake Superior the first day (overlook Overlooked Falls) and ended up choosing one of the first few sites because there were definitely not as many bear poles as the park map makes it seem. Hiked to Lake of the Clouds the next day (keep hiking past the first four sites to the very last one, about .5 miles in - it is worth it - if you aren't going to make it by dark the sites on the ridgeline of Government peak trail and Escarpment trail are better than the aforementioned first few sites on Lake of the Clouds). Third day we camped on top of Government Peak (underwhelming view, refill water before heading up, crazy amount of regular/non-biting flies) and hiked out the last day via Mirror Lake.
