Iron County Heritage Festival

Although the ongoing coronavirus pandemic makes it unclear how many of the area’s local events will be held this summer, Iron County’s annual Heritage Festival is always popular with residents. The annual celebration of Iron County’s heritage usually features over two weeks of events, including parties, golf outings, a county fair and more. This year’s festival is tentatively planned to run July 25-Aug. 9. In past years, the festival has kicked off in late July with

Page 12 – Summer Fun & Dining Guide

not only the start of the Northwoods Art Tour in the Mercer area, but also the Hurley Quarterback Club’s golf outing, the Iron County Historical Museum’s living history open house and the Highline Corporation’s open house. The last weekend in July also usually features the Hurley All-Class Reunion, the Hurley High School Quarterback Athletic Hall of Fame ceremony, Hurley Education Foundation’s school tour and induction of distinguished alumni, and the Iron County Heritage Festival Parade. St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Hurley also usually holds its annual bazaar, with food, beverages, kids games, bingo and other activities. This year, the Iron County Fair is scheduled to run July 30-Aug. 2 and is part of the festival. There are also plenty of activities in the Mercer area during past festivals. These include the popular Night Before Loon Day street dance and the Mercer Loon Day and Craft Show the next day. Events in the Mercer area also usually include the Mercer Lions’ annual Turtle River Duck Races at Rugger’s Landing. For more information on the Heritage Festival and its events, contact the Iron County Development Zone at 715561-2922.

Iron County Fair

Although it is unclear how long the ongoing coronavirus pandemic will continue to impact local events, organizers announced that as of mid-April they were still planning to hold the Iron County Fair. This year’s fair is planned for July 30 through Aug. 2 at the fairgrounds in Saxon. It will be the 93nd running of the county fair that offers activities ranging from carnival rides and a mud run to the popular pie action on Sunday afternoon. People who haven’t attended the fair in recent years will be surprised to visit the updated buildings and improvePage 14 – Summer Fun & Dining Guide

ments that have been made throughout the fairgrounds. The fair is part of the Iron County Heritage Festival, which packages many events under one umbrella in late July and August. It allows former residents to return home for a weekend of memories and catching up with their friends. Other popular fair features are an antique tractor show, an old-fashioned horse pulling contest, the Saturday livestock auction, plenty of 4-H horse shows and musical entertainment. At the youth livestock auction, Iron County 4-Hers display their market projects, including steers, hogs, lambs,

chickens and turkeys. Fair-goers are encouraged to bid on the homegrown animals. The auction runs from 6-8 p.m. in the pen near the cattle barns. A fair board of dedicated volunteers meets on a monthly basis to set up entertainment for the fair and plan for the exhibits. To get to the fair from Ironwood and Hurley, take U.S. 2 west to Saxon, then turn left at either the County B intersection or the Wisconsin 122 intersection. For more information on the fair, visit ironcountyfairwi.net or  its Facebook page at facebook.com/Ironcountyfairwisconsin/.

Ontonagon County Fourth of July

Fourth of July celebrations in Ontonagon County are “up in the air” as one of the organizers of the Fourth of July in Greenland Township described the situation in light of the coronavirus pandemic and social distancing concerns. Plans have been made and the ands are books, and organizers are hoping they’ll be able to have another grand celebration like last year’s that grew to about 500 people. The same kind of ambiguity is being felt by organizers of the Bruce Crossing Fourth of July celebration. Their celebra-

tion is slated for July 4th with a parade, races, music, contests and fireworks. The White Pine celebration is slated earlier than the ones in Greenland and Bruce Crossing. The committee has chosen the Saturday, June 27, to honor Independence Day. A parade at 1 p.m. games and fireworks are on the schedule, but organizers are uncertain about what the stat’s gathering rules will be. “If the state says ‘yes,’ we will have it; if they say ‘no,’ then it’s off,” one committee member said.

64th annual Labor Day Festival

The 64th annual Labor Day Festival in Ontonagon will be celebrated Sept. 4-6 with many of its traditional features and some new ones. Last year, the Festival Committee moved the Kiddies’ Parade to Saturday and it proved to be a very popular decision. The Kids Parade now coincides with Maxwell Street fair that same day. Organizers said the move was popular with visitors are former residents who come back each year for the festivities. The celebration kicks off with a community picnic with free hot dogs, pop Page 24 – Summer Fun & Dining Guide

and chips at the Village Marina. Village and county safety vehicles and the Aspirus helicopter will be available for inspection by the public. That will be followed by the rock skipping championship. Beside the Kiddies’ Parade, Saturday is packed with many other activities including a car  show, bed race, dunk tank and a large selection of venders on the street and more. Sunday brings the Ed Hansen Aspirus 5K and 10K runs in the morning as a prelude to the large parade featur-

ing bands, floats and a concert from Marty’s Goldenaires Drum and Bugle Corps. The celebration and the day ends up with a community celebration at the Ontonagon Recreation Center. There will be food, live music, auction and raffle drawing. The Labor Festival Committee is also discussing a possible salute to and participation of Ontonagon and Ewen-Trout Creek seniors of the class of 2020 as a way to give them a special day.

Black River Harbor

Known for its spectacular waterfalls, idyllic beaches, scenic hiking trails and tranquil campground, the Black River Harbor Recreation Area is a popular destination throughout the year. The harbor offers one of the area's few access points to Lake Superior, with boating being a major summer time activity. The boat ramp can accommodate almost any craft trailered in. There is no launching fee. Boat fuel and snacks are available through the concessionaire. A historic pavillion built by the CCC is also located here. There are 60 picnic tables and grills available, as is a remodeled enclosed pavilion. The campground has 40 camp sites. Twenty-three are reserved camping sites and 17 more “first come, first serve” sites. The waterfalls are along the Black River which flows through large pine, hemlock and hardwood trees. There are multiple platforms accessible by trail to view various elevation drops to Lake Superior. Much of this trail is part of the North Country Trail. The Black River earns its name from the tannic acids leaching out of local hemlock trees. The Black River Harbor is managed by the Ottawa National Forest and is the only harbor within the National Forest System. Located approximately 15 miles north of Bessemer at the mouth of the Black River. In 1992, the Black River area was officially dedicated as a National Scenic Byway because of its natural beauty and recreational opportunities. The Scenic byway stretch begins on County Road 513 at the intersection with County Road 204 (Airport Road) and travels 11 miles north to the harbor. During 1848, William A. Burt, a land surveyor, completed a survey of what is now the Black River Recreation Area. The original survey shows a wagon road going south from the mouth of the Black River to Chippewa Hill, which is the location of the Copper Peak Ski Flying Hill.

North Country Trail

The longest trail in the National Trail System, the North Country National Scenic Trail stretches more than 4,600 miles from Vermont to North Dakota — including running through parts of Gogebic and Ontonagon counties and Iron County, Wis. Marked by blue blazes along the route, the North Country Trail offers an excellent route to explore many of the area’s forests and waterfalls. The roughly 40 miles of trail in Iron County is a mix of on-road and off-road hiking between Copper Falls State Park in Ashland County and the Michigan border near Superior Falls. The North Country Trail’s website describes the section as running through a “land of waterfalls and rock outcrops,” and being moderately difficult. “Passing through portions of the ancient, but worn down Penokee Mountain Range, you’ll encounter many rock outcrops,” the site’s description continues. “These outcrops offer expansive vistas where the trail passes over the top or skirts their bases and give trailside interest in the form of a wall of lichens, mosses, and small ferns.” Once in Michigan, the trail follows Lake and Airport Roads to Black River Road before going off-road near Copper Peak. The trail runs north to Black River Harbor before crossing the river and heading east toward M-64 and the Porcupine Mountains. “The area consists of mostly mature forest with diverse flora and fauna, a mixed terrain of old logging roads, narrow paths and elevation changes. Areas of particular beauty are Black River Harbor and the Presque Isle River area of Porcupine Mountain State Park,” according to the website. “The trail offers four seasons of recreational opportunity, each with its own special flavor.” The section of the trail in the Western Upper Peninsula is rated as difficult, although this could vary depending on where in the 192 miles between the state border and the Marquette/Baraga county line people are hiking. More information on the trail can be found at northcountrytrail.org.

Turtle Flambeau Flowage

The Turtle Flambeau Flowage Scenic Wilderness Waters Area is a nature lover’s vacation destination. There are 195 islands and six boat landings on nearly 19,000 acres of water, a result of 1926 dam construction to create a reservoir in southern Iron County. There are 66, non-reservable remote campsites that are accessible only by water, but there is also 35,500 acres of land to be explored. There are also six reservable campsites. The flowage offers five distinct trails stretching nearly 250 miles that are perfect for hiking, biking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and hunting. The five trails are Big Island Trail, Deadhorse Trail, Little Turtle Trail, Wilson Hills Trail and Hidden Rivers Nature Trail, which is wheelchair friendly. The Flambeau Flowage is known for its abundant wildlife, including eagles, deer, bear, timber wolves and moose. The flowage has a number of underwater stumps and driftwood that

Saxon Harbor

Users are undoubtedly anxious to get back to Saxon Harbor this summer as it has been closed for several years after being destroyed in the July 2016 storm. The boat launches opened in April, with plans to open the harbor’s marina in May when road restrictions are lifted and docks can be installed. The rebuilt marina features 81 slips, with about 70% of them filled with seasonal rentals. Water and power are also available to boaters, and there are plans to staff the marina seven days a week once it opens. Boat slip rates vary, based on both lengths and slip positions. Although Gov. Tony Evers designated marinas as essential services as Wisconsin seeks to halt the coronavirus pandemic, Saxon Harbor’s pavilions and fish cleaning station remain closed while restrictions on activities

are still in place. County officials ask that people adhere to responsible social distancing recommendations while using the harbor’s day use areas so they can remain open for recreational enjoyment. Although construction continues on

Saxon Harbor’s campground, officials hope to be able to open it in late July or August. For more information, or to make reservations, contact the Iron County Forestry Department at 715561-2697.

Iron Belle Trail The Iron Belle Trail is an ongoing and exciting new development in the area and across the state. It is a set of two trails that are planned to run throughout the state of Michigan from Ironwood to Belle Isle Park in Detroit. It is considered to be the longest designated state trail system in the nation. One trail is for hiking and the other for biking and other nonmotorized use. The two scenic trails wind along the beautiful Northwoods landscape along rivers and other natural landmarks. Locally, the Western Gateway Trail Authority has been instrumental in building a paved trail from Ironwood to BessePage 40 – Summer Fun & Dining Guide

mer, along a former railroad grade. The paved trail crosses many bridges and reaches into Hurley on the western end. Plans are being made to extend this trail from Bessemer to Ramsay this summer, and then again to Wakefield. The North Country Trail along the Black River in northern Gogebic County and over to the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park has been designated as part of the Iron Belle hiking trail. It is anticipated that the expansion will continue in years to come with a potential for connection with the Northern Highlands Regional Non-motorized Trail which begins in Mercer, Wis.

Gile Flowage

The expansive Gile (Wis.) Flowage offers a variety of fishing opportunities, but walleyes and monster muskies are the prime species. There are four boat landings on the Montreal River Flowage that is controlled by Xcel Energy. Landings in Gile and on County C offer ample space for parking boat trailers and also shore fishing opportunities. The 3,138-acre flowage has a maximum depth of 25 about feet, but that’s deep enough to hold a large population

of walleyes. Walleyes inhabit shallow water after spawning in the spring and tend to move deeper during the summer months. They can readily be caught from shore in spring on bait or with artificial lures, like Rapalas. There’s also an abundant population of smallmouth bass, northern pike, muskies and panfish, like crappies. Winter fishing has become as popular on the flowage as summer angling, and tents spring up across the ice during cold weather months.

Copper Peak

The Adventure Ride at Copper Peak is a popular area attraction that provides panoramic views from the top of a former ski jump. The jump was used for international ski competitions from 1970 until it was closed in 1994. The Adventure Ride lets visitors take an 800-foot chair lift ride to an observation deck where visitors can view from there, or continue up an additional eight stories to the very top. The awe-inspiring, unobstructed vista overlooks the south shore of Lake Superior including Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park that is 25 miles northeast in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan; 40 miles northwest past the Apostle Islands and northeast Wisconsin, and north across Lake Superior to Isle Royle, Michigan, and to northern Minnesota and Canada. The Adventure Ride typically opens Memorial Day Weekend and this year will be dependent on the expiration of the current COVID-19 shutdown order. Once open the Adventure Ride will be operational through mid-October. Copper Peak is 10 miles north of Bessemer by taking Black River Road (County Road 513) to N13870 Copper Peak Road. There are on-site mountain bike trails, a gift shop. Copper Peak is a registered Michigan Historic Site and member of the Western Upper Peninsula Heritage Network.

There are several museums in the area which preserve local history and culture in the form of photographs, equipment and other artifacts. In Ironwood, the Old Depot Park Museum is located downtown between Lowell and Suffolk streets. The building was constructed in 1892 and served as the Chicago North Western Railroad depot. The museum features iron mining displays, railroad memorabilia, items from Ironwood’s past and the Ironwood Historical Society research center. For more information, call 906-932-0287. The Ironwood Area Chamber of Commerce also has its office in the old depot. The Ironwood Memorial Building houses municipal offices, a 1,500-seat auditorium and many historical displays, including a statue of a World War I doughboy and numerous bronze tablets listing locals who served during the Civil War, Spanish-American War, and the World War I. The building is located at the corner of McLeod Avenue and Marquette Street. For more information, call 906-932-5050. Located at 202 Iron St. in Hurley, the Iron County Historical Society Museum opened in 1971 in the former Iron County Courthouse. It displays artifacts on the history of local mining and logging communities. It is open Monday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for the summer months. For more information, call 715-561-2244.

The Ironwood Chamber of Commerce purchased and installed a 52-foot fiberglass statue of Native American chief Hiawatha for $10,000 in 1964. The statue was manufactured by Gordon Industries of Minneapolis and transported 230 miles on a flatbed truck to its current location at the end of Burma Road in Hiawatha Park on June 25, 1964. Hiawatha was believed to have created peace among Native American tribes and is credited for forming the Iroquois nation. Hiawatha was hoisted to a standing position by a mining crane and is supported by 55 yards of concrete and 5,000 pounds of steel reinforcements. The statue is made to withstand winds of 140 mph. For a number of years the community celebrated Hiawatha Days over a long weekend in July. They included events like concerts, a battle of the bands, a rodeo, downtown carnival, softball tournament and authentic Ojibway dancers from Lac du Flambeau, Wis. The Ironwood Chamber of Commerce offered a 50th birthday celebration for the Hiawatha statue in July 2015 as part of Festival Ironwood, the community’s current mid-July celebration. The Native American chief still stands tall just south of Page 46 – Summer Fun & Dining Guide

‘Where the waters meet’

Watersmeet lives up to its name by offering 302 lakes and 241 miles of trout streams. According to the Watersmeet Chamber of Commerce, the Cisco Chain alone has 15 lakes. The Lac Vieux Desert Lake, shared by Wisconsin, also has 4,200 acres of boundary waters and welcomes both Michigan and Wisconsin fishing licenses. The origin of Watersmeet’s name, according to the chamber, comes from three rivers that flow from the region in different directions — the Ontonagon River flows north into Lake Superior, the Wisconsin River flows south into the Mississippi River, and the Paint River flows east into Lake Michigan; hence, this is the place “where the waters meet.” All that water makes for a fisherman’s paradise, with species including walleye, northern pike, cisco, trout, small- and large-mouth bass, panfish (such as bluegill, perch and crappie), silver musky, and state- and world-record tiger musky. May 15 is the fishing opener for game fish. Bass season opens May 25. The region’s trees rival water in abundance. The Ottawa National Forest features more than 1 million acres and 10 national forest campgrounds. As part of that forest, the Sylvania Wilderness Area is run by the U.S. Forest Service. The Sylvania area boasts about 20,000 acres of “virgin forest,” and portages connect many of its lakes. Its recreation area has a 48-unit campground, a pavilion with showers, boat landings, and a beach and picnic area. For more information on camping, fishing, hunting, kayaking, hiking, biking, fall color tours, waterfalls, interpretive programs, and ATV trails, visit the Ottawa Visitor Center at U.S. 2 and U.S. 45, call 906-358-4724, or visit fs.fed.us/r9/ottawa. Finally, the Michigan Trails and Recreation Alliance of Land and the Environment offers monthly trail rides. June 13-14 and Aug. 8-9 are Michigan’s weekends to ride trails for free with no need of an ORV license or trail permit. For more information, visit mi-trale.org. For more information on Watersmeet, call the chamber at 906-358-9961 or visit watersmeet.org. Due to concerns with COVID-19 this year, visitors are encouraged to check in advance to be sure their activity and area of choice is available. Summer Fun & Dining Guide – Page 49

Lake Gogebic Area

As the largest inland lake in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Lake Gogebic provides plenty of fun year round. With more than 13,000 acres in both Gogebic and Ontonagon counties, the lake offers walleye, jumbo perch, whitefish, smallmouth bass and northern pike. Kayaking has become very popular on the lake and on several bays and streams around the lake, and some resorts offer kayak rentals. Surrounding the 36-mile shoreline are opportunities for hiking among waterfalls, wildlife and the Ottawa National Forest. The Lake Gogebic Area Chamber also holds a monthly fishing contest and tagged fish contest from May 15-Sept. 14. In addition, the chamber will sponsor a John Murphy Page 50 – Summer Fun & Dining Guide

Memorial Walleye Tournament on Sept. 11-12. Besides a grand prize of $2,000, there will be daily prizes for perch, smallmouth bass and northern pike. The weekend of June 13-14 will feature free fishing and ORV riding (no license required). The same weekend offers the Lake Gogebic Fireflies’ all-lake garage sale from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on June 13. The 35th annual Tour da Lake Bicycle Tour around Lake Gogebic will be held on June 27. To register, call 906-932-3332 or check hobbywheel.com. Gogebic Lodge will offer fireworks at dusk on July 5.

The many rivers in the area form an abundance of waterfalls. Use extreme caution on riverbanks and respect the power of the water. Officials from area chambers of commerce, the Ottawa National Forest and Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park can provide maps and more information.

Black River National Forest Scenic Byway

The Black Riverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final descent towards Lake Superior provides five spectacular waterfalls to visit.

Directions: Head north for about 3 miles along Powderhorn Road off of U.S. 2 near Bessemer. Take a left onto Black River Road and follow for it for over 10 miles. The waterfalls are on the right.

GREAT CONGLOMERATE FALLS 46.6325 - 90.055 This 20-foot waterfall is the first coming from town towards Black River Harbor. The 3/4 mile walk is the farthest of the five. It is named for the large piece of conglomerate rock that divides the two segments. POTAWATOMI FALLS 46.6375 - 90.05139 These falls feature a 30-foot drop.


46.64028 - 90.05028 The 24-foot fall is downstream from Potawatomi Falls and are reached from the same parking area. They are named for the deep, narrow gorge above and below the falls.

RAINBOW FALLS 46.65889 - 90.04361 Perhaps the most impressive of the five, the 30-foot Rainbow Falls can be viewed from both sides of the river. A


46.65 - 90.047 The smallest of the five waterfalls.


half-mile hike from the Rainbow parking area leads to the observation deck. The best view is from the east side of the river, which can be accessed from Black River Harbor. Walk across the bridge and there is a sign before the beach. The mile-long trail is mostly flat after initally climbing the riverbank. Be careful, there is no guardrail.

Directions: From Wakefield, travel east along M-28 to County Road 519. Follow that road north until you pass South Boundary Road, heading into the park and to a trail to visit the falls. This is part of the Porcupine Mountains

Presque Isle River area State Park.

MANABEZHO FALLS 46.70778 - 89.971677 This is the largest at 25 feet and it’s also the last named waterfall before the Presque Isle River enters Lake Superior. The falls can be seen from both sides of the river. There is a pedes-

INTERSTATE FALLS 46.472506 - 90.199832 Taking U.S. 2 for .6 miles from Hurley to Center Drive, where there is a sign marking the property. Turning north at the sign, follow road straight east — do not take any side roads. Continue for .3 miles and park at large parking area on the left. Follow the trail to the north to visit Interstate Falls. These are close to Ironwood and Hurley and offer a fantastic view.

trian bridge downriver from here that offers a view of the potholes the river has carved. MANIDO FALLS 46.705 - 89.97056 This 10-foot waterfall is just upstream from Manabezho Falls. Both can be viewed from either side of the river.

NAWADAHA FALLS 46.699 - 89.974 This is a low (15 feet), wide waterfall further upstream. It is near South Boundary Road and can also be accessed from the wilder, more primitive east side of the river, as can all three.

Border area


46.5327 - 90.3827 Drive west on U.S. 2 from Ironwood for about 10.5 miles, entering Wisconsin. Make a right turn onto County B and follow 2.4 miles, then continue on Saxon Falls Road for another 1/2 mile. These 110-foot falls are located on the Montreal River. The gorge below the falls is one of the deepest in the Midwest. This waterfall is a strange one to access as it’s near a power plant.

SUPERIOR FALLS 46.564818 - 90.415244 Take Wisconsin 122, turning north off of U.S. 2, near Saxon. Stay on 122 for 4.2 miles, crossing the Wisconsin-Michigan border. Continue another 1/2 mile, then turn left on a gravel road marked by Xcel Energy. At 90 feet high, the falls are fed by the Montreal River near Lake Superior. There is a spectular view from near the parking area and they can be seen at river level, but it involves a steep hike. Page 54 – Summer Fun & Dining Guide

Iron County Waterfalls

KIMBALL FALLS 46.485907 - 90.263706 Take U.S. 2 west of Hurley, turn south on Park Road and west on Town Park Drive. These gently cascading rapids on the west branch of the Montreal River skirt the Kimball Town Park. The park offers picnic and play areas, as well as a nature trail. POTATO RIVER FALLS 46.461142 - 90.53032 Take U.S. 2 to Wisconsin 169 and turn south. Continue for 2.8 miles through Gurney, then turn right on Potato River Falls Road. Travel 1.5 miles until you can’t drive any farther. Rustic picnic campsites are available. The falls are a monstrous 90 feet high, located on the Potato River in Gurney. FOSTER FALLS 46.4225 - 90.4587 Head north from Upson on Wisconsin 122 for five miles. Turn west on Sullivan Road for three miles.

SPRING CAMP FALLS 46.347726 - 90.23942 From Hurley, take U.S. 51 south for 4.7 miles and turn right onto County C. Follow that for 1.5 miles. The road turns sharply north, don’t take that. Continue on the gravel road for a mile, turn south and follow Island Lake Road for 3 miles. Turn right, go about 1.3 miles and follow the rustic path signs. The 20-feet high falls are along the west branch of the Montreal River, south of Hurley, and are also known as the Montreal Falls.


46.39781 - 90.50755 Located along the Tyler Forks River, Wren Falls are 30 feet high. Take U.S. 2 15 miles west of Hurley and turn left on Wisconsin 169. Travel about 5.7 miles and turn left on Vogues Road. Stay on there for about 3.5 miles. At the hairpin turn, take the center road across for 1.5 miles. From there, hike up the hill to a primitive campsiite on the north side of the falls. UPSON FALLS

46.371214 - 90.412041 From Upson, travel west on Wisconsin 77, then take a right on Park Road. The signs will guide you to the Upson Town Park where you can view the 18-foot high falls.

LAKE OF THE FALLS 46.150491 - 90.151973 Travel northwest from Mercer on U.S. 51 for 1.4 miles, turn west on County FF and proceed to the picnic area about five miles. It’s on the left. It is 10 feet high and on the Turtle River.


46.370681 - 90.479515 Head west from Upson 2.5 miles on Wisconsin 77, turn right on Casey Sag Road for 1 mile. Hike .75 mile on the rustic trail.

SHAY’S DAM FALLS 46.236429 - 89.994581 Travel east from Mercer on County J, turn north on Beaver Lodge Circle, go 3.6 miles to Fisher Lake Road, turn east and go 1.2 miles. Watch for the sign. These are 15 feet high. GILE FALLS

46.43074 - 90.22715 Turn south off Wisconsin 77 onto Kokogan Street and then right onto Mellon Street.

LITTLE BALSAM FALLS 46.361397 - 90.495962 This is about 1 mile north of Wisconsin 77 and less than a half-mile south of the confluence of Erickson Creek and Tyler Forks River. There is a foot path to the falls. Summer Fun & Dining Guide – Page 55

Other area waterfalls Ontonagon County


46.651498 - 89.15161 Take U.S. 45 north of Bruce Crossing for 8 miles. Parking lot is on the right. It is a 1.3-mile hike on an improved trail. Located on the Baltimore River, these 25-feet high falls are worth the long hike. One of the only few plunge falls in Michigan, daredevils can actually go behind the falls in the summer but must be careful. AGATE FALLS

46.48083-89.09083 Take M-28 east of Bruce Crossing for 6.5 miles. There’s a park on the south side of the highway. These 30-feet high falls are part of the middle branch of the Ontonagon River and considered among the most beautiful in Michigan. There is an observation deck, but the view is better from below the falls, which requires a difficult walk down a fisherman’s trail. BOND FALLS

46.40889 - 89.13278 Take U.S. 45 south of Bruce Crossing and head east on Bond Falls Road. The 50-foot falls are fed by the middle branch of the Ontonagon River and Bond Flowage. Bond Falls are more than 100 feet wide. These are very easy to access.

Gogebic County

GABBRO (BAKERS) FALLS 46.50222 - 89.9921 Head north on Blackjack Road from U.S. 2 for about 1.6 miles, then take a left after a wooden covered bridge. Stay left for about 1/2 mile and find the falls to the east. The 40-feet high falls are located on the Black River near Ramsay.

Golf courses

Golfing the courses on the Gogebic Range is an excellent way to spend a summer day. From the panoramic views from the Skye course on Whitecap Mountains (715-561-2227) near Iron Belt to the 18 holes at the Lac Vieux Desert Casino in Watersmeet, there are plenty of tree-lined challenges for golfers of all levels. The Gogebic Country Club in Ironwood (906-932-2525) offers 18 holes on a mostly flat layout, with plenty of interesting holes that offer a variety of options. Perhaps the signature hole is the dogleg par four No. 14, guarded by deep bunkers on both sides. A steeply sloped green adds to the challenge. The long par 5 finishing hole, with a green that can be viewed from the dining area of the clubhouse, is another favorite. At the Eagle Bluff Golf Club in Hurley (715-561-3552), the

sloped greens are a challenge and the back nine can be brutal under windy conditions. Still, there are plenty of short holes that present birdie opportunities following accurate drives. The toughest hole is the par four No. 11, which doglegs right. It takes a healthy drive to get a look at the green and keeping the ball in play off the tee can be tough. Five is a good score on the 420-yard hole. Watersmeetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lac Vieux Desert (906-358-0303) course, with its blue grass fairways, is right next to the casino. The back nine is as challenging as any course in the area. Tahoe Lynx near Mercer (715-476-0050), offers nine holes in a wooded setting. Other courses include the Chequamegon Bay in Ashland, the Ontonagon Golf Club, the Gateway Golf Club in Land Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Lakes, Wis., and the Mellen Country Club.
