A short trail at Porcupine Mountains State Park. This is a well travelled trail that descends from the parking lot down to Lake of the Clouds. This trail was recorded in reverse, and distance is for one way. A small section is steep for the less fit amongst us, but still very achievable. There is a camping site near the lake too.

Beautiful. Highly recommend staying the night on the campsite that's on the point of the lake. Watch for bears on the cliff infront of you!
