SECLUDED MICHIGAN HIGHLANDS RIVERSIDE CABIN/HOME FOR SALE - WHERE THERE ARE EXCITING THINGS TO DO EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR! This property is nestled in the Foothills of the Huron Mountains, between the Bald Mountain chain to the west and Mount Benison to the east. The Huron Mountains straddle Baraga and Marquette Counties, and are the highest and most rugged terrain found in Michigan. These Highlands contain more state champion trees than anywhere else in Michigan. Mount Benison is located in the Anne and Cameron Waterman Preserve and features a series of granite knobs dominated by stunted white pine/red oak forest and one of the highest peaks in the area. In addition, the 1,381-acre preserve protects two Class I trout streams, including nearly ninety percent of the Mink Run watershed and the Cliff River. The Mink Run watershed contains several hundred acres of old-growth hemlock and white pine forests. The land is dominated by granite gorges and knobs, making it very rugged and difficult to travel. The property is home to several wildlife species such as otter, osprey, bald eagles, and numerous species of woodland warblers and thrushes. Its remoteness contributes to the viability of wide-ranging species such as wolves and moose. Varied rock, soil and topography combinations, plus the remoteness of the Highlands contributes to outstanding examples of northern hardwood forests, open pine-oak forests on bedrock knobs, and mature pine forests, many embedded with sites of concentrated biodiversity. Many rare plants are found on either cliffs or bedrock balds. (This preserve is surrounded by private property and has no public access, but special access can be arranged.) Bald Mountain is at the westernmost point of the Huron Mountains and has three rocky outcroppings, an altitude of 1,184 feet, and a good view of the Huron River and Keweenaw Peninsula. There are higher peaks in the state, but few have the cluster of exposed and bald formations that this range has. The proper
