-From the intersection of US Hwy 41 and Broad Street immediately South of L’Anse, proceed North into L’Anse on Broad Street for 0.7 miles to Main Street.

-Turn right (E) on Main Street which will become Skanee Road, and continue 16.1 miles to Roland Lake Road on the right, where the Zion Lutheran Church is on the SE corner.

-Turn right (S) on Roland Lake Road and proceed 2.9 miles to Ravine River Road at Roland Lake.


There are many less well-developed roads in the Ravine River Road area. Please follow the blue signs that mark the way to the top. Unless indicated below, stay on the obvious “main track” as you proceed along Ravine River Road. The route on Ravine River Road is as follows: (at this point reset the odometer).


-At 0.7 miles, fork, go straight

-1.8 miles, pass through gravel pit

-2.0 miles, leave gravel pit at a fork, go straight

-3.0 miles, fork, bear left

-3.4 miles, fork, bear right

-4.0 miles, 4.5 miles and 4.7 miles, forks go straight

-6.1 miles. T-intersection, main road goes left, turn right (S)

-6.3 miles fork, go left

-6.4 miles, steep incline at the point, fork, go right

-6.8 miles, fork, go right

-7.2 miles go to right. At this point there is a parking lot and there is an approximately 1/2 mile walk to the summit.


These directions were printed before improvements had been made on the road. If you find that any of these directions differ from signage along the way, please follow the signs!


From the parking area a wide fairly level trail winds 1/2 mile to the summit. Only a few years ago this trail was a road (in the loosest sense of the term) that, with a 4-wheel drive, you could drive a vehicle to the summit on. There are a few moderately steep sections but nothing serious. You’ll know the summit when you get there – a large blue marker and two blue benches mark the summit. Don’t forget to sign the log book inside the small, steel mailbox attached to the summit marker!


From Main Street in L’Anse, MI, turn on to Skanee Road and go 16.1 miles to Roland Lake Road. Turn south and go 3 miles to Ravine River Road, then follow the blue signs to the parking lot, and hike a half mile to the summit. These roads are dirt and used by heavy logging trucks. A passenger car will likely not make it if the roads are wet.If coming from the south (Marquette) you will also be traveling on dirt roads, with no gas stations for over an hour any direction.
