Ascent Trip Report

Flew to MKE and rented a car to hit the Midwest Lakes Area high points. Mount Arvon was second of 5 for this trip. I stayed in the L'Anse campground the night before. High recommended. Overlooks Lake Superior and has showers etc and very reasonable rates. Drove to the trailhead (very slow going), the road would be near impossible in bad weather; used the summit post odometer readings ( a bit off but doable); the blue signs by the Hghpointers association were helpful. Plan on one hour from L'Anse to get to trailhead parking. Eat early because L'Anse closes up early. The hardest part is getting to the trailhead, there is no climb just a 30-second walk...
