Summary

Lots of fossils. Approach is through the quarry.

Description

Climbing wall is the face of an old quarry

Access issues

20 Min drive North of Alpena. No cell service. Only water source is Lake Huron

Approach

Bring good shoes. Pointy rocks eat up your shoes

Where to stay

There are 2 walk in campsites(cant find where they are), I dont think anyone cares if you pitch a tent in the quarry if you adhere to L.N.T.or sleep in your car. Local kids woke me up many times through the night partying. Next time Ill park y the boat launch

Ethic

Use your head. The only toilets are at the parking area near the lake.
