Wolf Mountain

September 4, 2019

Whenever we travel, I always like to have a list of detour spots that we can stop at along the way. I like to keep within a 20-mile radius so that we’re not deviating too far from our original route. So when we were on our way up to the Porcupine Mountains, we decided to do a quick hike up to Wolf Mountain.

Wolf Mountain is a stunning lookout spot with an out and back trail. It’s located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, not too far past the Wisconsin border.

To get to the Wolf Mountain Overlook, you’ll start by doing a short, gradual hike through the lush, wooded forest (approx. 0.7 miles one way). As you near the top, the trail will become rather steep and narrow. When you make it to the top, you’ll see the opening of trees leading you out to the overlook. The overlook area is fairly small but offers a spectacular view of the Michigan landscape!

Getting there

If you’re heading northwest on Hwy 2 toward Wakefield, turn right onto USFS 398. This dirt road is about 2.5 miles long and will lead you right to the circular parking lot at the top.
