Ascent Trip ReportOn the way to Grove Hill I stopped at a little store in Dighton to see if the cashier had any neat facts or information about the highpoint. From the store, I drove a few miles north on Dighton Road through rolling countryside. About 1/10 mile after the paved driveway to WWTV studios on the right, there's a smaller, unpaved driveway to Grove Hill Park. I parked at the top and walked around the clearing to find the highest visible elevation. There's a wooden sign which claims Grove Hill is the highest point in the Lower Peninsula of Michigan at 1700 feet.
Despite the lack of challenge in reaching this summit, it's a nice place to relax and eat lunch. There's a picnic table, some benches, and a beautiful red pine plantation surrounding the park.
