One of the hidden gems in the Keweenaw Peninsula, High Rock Bay offers spectacular views of Lake Superior as well as Manitou Island. Plethora of flora and fauna call this place their home as well. Not too far from here is the historic Keweenaw Rocket Range.

Directions

Follow US41 to its northern most tip in Copper Harbor and continue on to Mandan Road (a seasonal road) for about 5 miles. Condition of Mandan Road has improved significantly since my first attempt in 2004 and any automobile with a 6-8 inch clearing can easily survive (when driven slowly). At the 5 mile mark, make a left on to High Rock Bay Road (aka Snow Mobile Hwy 134) and continue for about 2.5 miles. The first half a mile is automobile-friendly but the last two are quite treacherous and require 4WD/ATV (or hiking). At the 2.5 mile mark, keep to the right fork and follow it for about 0.5 miles to arrive at the Hight Rock Bay.
