Beautiful, scenic vistas of the Upper Peninsula await the hearty souls willing to climb the 250-plus boulder-strewn steps to the top of Silver Mountain. The stairs are a rugged climb, and the site offers few amenities, so come prepared.
In addition to spectacular views of the surrounding countryside, Silver Mountain offers excellent opportunities to view migrating birds-of-prey (raptors).
In May-June and again in September-October, watch broad-winged and red-tailed hawks soaring on the strong updrafts of wind that whistle up the mountainside. Smaller sharp-shinned hawks and American kestrels are also common during migration.
From Baraga, travel west on M-38 about 9.5 miles to Prickett Dam Road (FS 2270). Turn left (south) and follow the signs to the Silver Mountain parking area.
