MICHIGAN LAKE SUPERIOR “OVERLOOK” PROPERTY FOR SALE ON POINT ABBAYE - The Point Abbaye Peninsula is a 12.3-mile-long peninsula that juts out into Lake Superior. This body of land is located in Arvon Township, in north-central Baraga County, in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. This boreal ecosystem is bounded by the Keweenaw Bay on the west and the Huron Bay on the east. Considered a very special place by the Ojibwa who fished, hunted, and camped here for generations, it remained mostly untouched until the late 1800s. Forked trees located along Point Abbaye Road may be Ojibwa trail or site markers. Point Abbaye has several Indian sites along the point and it was common to mark them by bending trees. The Hebard and Thurberg Lumber Company leased the peninsula in 1877 and began harvesting its old growth forests, and carrying the logs to the nearby sawmills at Pequaming. Today the thickly wooded second-growth forests are managed for production of pulpwood, and the shoreline is dotted with fine private homes and cottages, and vacant land parcels. The northern end of the Peninsula has Copper Country State Forest lands and the County of Baraga has a beautiful park which is located at the rugged, rocky tip. It’s only about a 4-5 mile drive over the twisty road from the property offered for sale to get there, but the view from the rugged sandstone shelf there is worth the drive! There are hiking trails, two outhouses, and a small campground for overnight camping. You might be able to see The Huron Island Light flashing from the rocky freshwater archipelago located about seven miles beyond the end of the peninsula. These islands are named the Huron Islands in honor of the Hurons who once lived in the area - and are a national wildlife area. The ancient Lake Superior sea beds have created some shear bluffs with high overlooks on both sides of the peninsula... And each side has its own special features. There are stunning sunset views on the west side, clear-day views of the Keweenaw Peninsula to the north, and those views of the Huron Islands and Huron Mountains from the east side. Lake Superior is well known for being the largest surface fresh water lake in the world, and fishing for salmon, whitefish and lake trout abounds on either side of Point Abbaye! Another local past time here is nature photography, and you'll have opportunities for that here year round! Whitetail deer, Black bear, Coyote, and Bald eagle sightings are common – and there is “walk in” access to thousands of acres of Corporate CFA Land for hunting, fishing, and trapping in season, just minutes away. The property being offered for sale is level, and has 319 feet of Bluff Frontage that is on the sunset view side of the Point! You can build a campfire, relax, and watch the beautiful sunsets, Aurora Borealis displays, and see views of the big ore carriers as they pass by in the distance! Trees on the property consist primarily of mature... Continued In Addendum
