Don't miss: Lake in the Clouds, arguably the most scenic place in Michigan; Summit Peak Observation Tower, an expansive view of the virgin forest and Lake Superior; Presque Isle Falls, with numerous cascades over intricate shale formations; Union Bay, miles of sandy beach for swimming and finding pretty beach stones; Union Mine Scenic Trail, a self guided historical tour.

Winter enthusiasts can downhill and cross-country ski at the Porcupine Mountains. Snowmobilers can rev-er up over 200 miles of groomed trails.

In the Ontonagon area fall colors are a patchwork of hardwoods combining to create a riot of colors. Panoramic vistas abound. Fall color peak season is the last two weeks of September and the first week of October. Don't miss the riverside board walk in Ontonagon, and scenic splendor of Bond and Agate Falls in the southern end of the county.
