Experience the beauty of fall in the Porcupine Mountains. When the leaves change, the Porcupine Mountains is where you want to be! Located on the shores of Lake Superior in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, the Porcupine Mountains are home to the largest tract of old-growth hardwood forests west of the Adirondacks. The pristine forests of the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness support black bear, deer, timber wolves, river otters and even moose, as well as rare woodland plants that depend on the old-growth forest habitat that abounds here. Perhaps the best fall view in all the Midwest can be found overlooking the Lake of the Clouds.
During the fall, the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park offers mountain bikers 21 miles of designated mountain biking trails. Hikers can explore 87 miles of trails. Other fall activities include steelhead and salmon fishing and hunting for ruffed grouse, black bear and deer.
