Ascent Trip Report

Turn west on Beaver Rd from Military road, after about 1.8 miles you will turn left (south) onto an unmarked road called Annis Pit Rd. It is a little more than a 2 track. After about 1.2 miles and going up a steep sandy “Michigan Mountain”, or hill, you top out and see four cement footings from a old tower on your left. There is a newer fenced communication tower visible from this point to the E. Wander around to find the highest spot. Easy point to grab if driving by on 127 or 75.
