American Lakes

LMC Calendar


This scenic area west of Cameron Pass provides access to Alpine Tundra, wildflowers, views of the spectacular Nokhu Crags and the Never Summer Mountain Range. The out and back hike begins at the trail head in State Forest State Park along an old logging road, follows the Michigan River, crosses over, climbs a series of switchbacks and emerges from the trees. Shortly thereafter we will access two lakes comprising American Lakes, also known as Michigan Lakes. Trails are moderate but rated B due to elevation. Round trip distance is 7.3 miles, elevation gain of 1,453' and maximum elevation of 11,317'.
