You really have to want to see this area. It is on the way to nowhere. You can't get out without back tracking. If you make it to Copper harbor you have to take the Brockway Mountain Drive. Was once a local secret, Not anymore....More

The road is very rough, not very scenic. Narrow road. I was a little disappointed. The overlook is worth the drive. The overlook is very close to Copper Harbor. If you didn't want the long bumpy drive, you can easily access the overlook from Copper...More

Never get tired of the trip up Brockway. Drive down near Eagle Harbor on 26 and come back to Copper Harbor via Brockway Mountain Drive. Much prettier.

You can't leave Copper Harbor without driving on this road. Quite amazing views from high elevation, this memory will last a lifetime!

I've been there several times and during every season of the year but nothing beats the fall colors. On a clear day you can see Lake Superior, the town of Copper Harbor, and wonderful forest mountain view. A must visit anytime of year. FYI: snow...More

Missed taking this mountain drive the first time coming to copper Harbor and made the second trip specifically to see the overlook that it offered and how far you can see into the horizon, especially during fall color season. Well worth the 3 hour trip...More

We were up there in mid August. I live about 4 hours south, and I can tell you we are already raking leaves here. I would think by mid October the leaves up there will be long gone. Not to mention the cold air will surely... More

No it is not the same trail system. I just did a search online and Brockway Mountain Drive goes off of Hwy 26 and heads inland. Where Hwy 26 goes along the lake shore.
