Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park
Ontonagon, MI  49953 Map

Nearly 80 old-fashioned kerosene lanterns illuminate a 1-mile trail for a unique and memorable experience. Ski or snow-shoe around the lighted loop. Stop about halfway around at the warming shelter for a campfire and some refreshments. The ski trail has an "easy" difficulty rating; however, skiing or snowshoeing at night is always a challenge. The trail begins across from the entrance to the ski hill and starts at 6:00 pm eastern time. #midnr #miparks #puremichigan #lanternlight
