Mount Arvon Baraga County, Michigan, USA Elevation 1,979 ft (603 m) Listing U.S. state high point Location Range Huron Mountains Coordinates Coordinates: Topo map USGS Skanee South
Mount Arvon, elevation 1,979 feet (603 m), located in L'Anse Township, Baraga County, is the highest natural point in the U.S. state of Michigan. Like nearby Arvon Township, Michigan, Mt. Arvon takes its name from the deposits of slate in the area which were reminiscent of those around Caernarfon in Wales. Mt. Arvon is part of the Huron Mountains range.
Mt. Arvon is a few miles from Mount Curwood, which for years had been designated as Michigan's highest spot until a resurvey in 1982 with modern technology determined that Mt. Arvon is one foot taller than Mt. Curwood.
Mt. Arvon is about twelve miles (19 km) east of L'Anse, although it is about a 26-mile (42 km) drive from the city as much of it lies on winding logging roads.
The property is owned by the MeadWestvaco paper company.
