Counties Trail is in:

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.

Wildlife Viewing

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.

Directions

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.
