WE ARE 60,000 ACRES OF WILDERNESS
THAT BRING FAMILIES CLOSER TOGETHER
We are trails and views that get kids outdoors and away from the Internet, away from the airwaves. We are something you do, not something you watch. We are skiing and snowshoeing and snowmobiling and snowball fights with your little sister. We are a day full of promise and a night full of stars. We are natural snow and natural lighting. We are the place Mother Nature brings her family, too. The Porcupine Mountains are one of the last great adventures.
THE PORKIES ACTIVITIES
WE ARE WHAT YOU REMEMBER ABOUT BEING OUTDOORS:
Snowshoeing opportunities are abound in Ontonagon County with thousands of acres of snow covered back country wilderness to explore. Long a popular winter activity in the Upper Peninsula, visitors are finding snowshoeing an excellent way to enjoy winter’s splendor in Ontonagon County.
Four main and several smaller trails combine to form our 42 KM Nordic Trail System. The trails feature two warming shelters and are power-tilled and groomed daily. Your Trail Pass includes use of the chairlifts giving skiers quick access to the heart of the Nordic Trail system, as well as the entire Alpine Ski area.
In addition, Lake of the Clouds can be reached by following M-107, which is unplowed in winter.
For snowmobilers, Lake of the Clouds can be reached by following M-107 which is unplowed in the winter. Ontonagon County’s 350 miles of groomed, marked snowmobile trails pass through some of the finest scenery in the Midwest. Travel through the deer yards and woodlands of the Ottawa National Forest.
