Mt. Arvon, Michigan's highest point at 1979.238' above sea level, is a challenging climb or there is now a back country road that goes right to the top of the mountain where you can enjoy a panoramic view of the area. The route is complicated, so we suggest you stop at the Tourism Office and pick up a map and directions to the top. The tourism staff has thoughtfully installed a mailbox at the top where visitors can leave their impressions and stories.
The road to Mt Arvon is now marked with blue signs. It is a dirt/gravel road and people should be aware of possible logging trucks on it at times. Once you get to Mt Arvon, it is a short (15min.) walk to the summit. There are no views from the summit, as it is a forested one, but for those wishing to bag High Points in each State, its well worth it I think. View the pond at the bottom, near the parking spot.
