Brockway Mountain Drive
Grab a camera and take the easy drive up Brockway Mountain, and you'll marvel at the view from 735 ft. above lake level. Look out over Lake Superior as the setting sun paints the wide expanse of Keweenaw Sky. Watch as a freighter silently cruises the waters off of the peninsula. Overlook the quaint town of Copper Harbor to the north, or scan the roads leading south, to spot the inland lakes or landmarks you passed on your trip up.
These are some of the reasons Brockway Mountain Drive has consistently been selected as one of the most scenic drives in the midwest. Just 9 1/2 miles long, it offers superb views and some of the best the Keweenaw has to offer, and in all the seasons. Summer offers opportunities to explore the Brockway Mountain Nature Association and Audubon Society Sanctuary. Fall yields unparalleled views of thousands of acres of changing colors. Winter snows close the road, but allows it to be transformed into a groomed snowmobile trail. And spring brings wild flowers and the migration of hawks and eagles.
