Highlights

  • Highest natural point in state of Michigan.
  • A few miles from Mount Curwood, which for years had been designated as Michigan's highest spot until a resurvey in 1982 with modern technology determined that Mount Arvon is one foot (0.30 m) taller than Mount Curwood.
  • Part of the Huron Mountains. Views from Mount Arvon look out to Lake Superior.
