Summit Peak in Ontonagon, MI, offers hikers and outdoor enthusiasts the opportunity to ascend to the summit of an old watch tower and enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding wilderness.
Sometimes when you stop to take a breath in the Porcupine Mountains, you’ll find a place that takes your breath away.

At nearly 2,000 feet above sea level, visitors will find a beautiful panoramic view atop the 50-foot tower, which is easily reached after a short hike. On clear days, hikers can see the Apostle Islands to the northwest and Isle Royale—surrounded by the blue waters of Lake Superior—to the northeast.
