Mount Josephine

mile 146.6

 

Length: 3 miles
Difficulty: difficult
 
Top-of-the-world views can be found at the summit of Mt. Josephine;  turnaround views of Grand Portage Bay, and Wauswaugoning Bay, the Susie Islands, and Isle Royale National Park. Hike in about 1/2-mile to a ‘Summit 1 mile’ sign, this is when it starts to get steep with a few switchbacks. The super easy way to see Mt. Jo is from the pull-offs on Hwy 61 a few miles south of the monument. Trailhead is on Upper Rd, past the holding ponds, to a small pull off on the left; the trail starts by heading northeast along an old road
