The Porcupine Mountains

The Porcupine Mountain Wilderness State Park is the largest of Michigan's state parks, totally 60,000 areas. This State Park, a well worn chain of mountains rising from the shores of Lake Superior, was named by the Ojibwa people for its resemblance to the porcupine. The Porcupine Mountains was established as a Michigan State Park in 1944 to protect the last extensive tract of old-growth forest remaining the Midwest. T map to enlarge.

The Porcupine Mountains today are known for their old growth forests, many geologic formations, the rough shoreline of Lake Superior, the many waterfalls throughout the park, and the great scenery, animals, fauna, and superb trails and backcountry opportunities.
