Ascent Trip ReportThe city of L'Anse seemed almost completely deserted as I drove through. At the turnoff by a church, 16 miles from town, the road is dirt, but in fairly good condition, and well marked with blue diamond "Arvon" signs that one can follow all the way to the top. I didn't really want to simply drive to the top, so I stopped a little earlier and hiked the rest of the way. Area seems to be quite popular with ATVs, as a couple groups passed me as I walked. There was a sign that said "view", but it was just a small pond. It was misty and overcast at the actual highpoint, so not much to see, I sort of imagined I could see Lake Superior, but it was pretty foggy. As I descended, it started to rain, which caused me to abort my attempt to go to Mt Curwood afterwards.
