Brockway Mountain

Brockway Mountain is definitely a must-see when visiting the Keweenaw Peninsula. It’s a beautiful spot to view the Michigan landscape, especially in the fall. And don’t let the name fool you – there’s no hiking or climbing involved to get to this viewpoint. You simply drive right up to the top!

To get there, you’ll take Brockway Mountain Drive, which is off of M-26. The road is paved but a little rough and will bring you right to the parking area at the top. It’s very open with lots of parking spots and many places to take in the view. You can see for miles!

There are pit toilets available but oddly, without doors. You just walk in, turn a corner, and there’s the toilet. I’m not sure if this was due to COVID or not but just something to keep in mind haha.

We spent about 40 minutes up here walking around, taking some pictures, and having lunch. It was pretty busy with people but since it’s such a big area, it was super easy to spread out.
