Ascent Trip Report

Three Top Mountain is a remote, craggy peak in the Amphibolite Mountains with outstanding views of the surrounding region. Scott Carter brought me to the trailhead. The mountain is aptly named after the three prominent rock summits on the central spine. This hike follows a steep, rocky forest road from the Three Top Mountain Game Land parking area to Huckleberry Rock at mile 1.7 where the trail ends, on Three Top Mountain at 5,035 feet. Huckleberry Rock has fantastic 360° views of the Amphibolite Mountains and the Iron Mountains to the north.
