About This Walk
Join us for a picturesque adventure, photographing and exploring Fort Wilkins, a restored 1844 army military outpost, which includes a quarter-mile of rocky Lake Superior shoreline with views of the Copper Harbor lighthouse, hiking trails along Lake Fanny Hooe, and a quarter-mile of sandy beach on Lake Manganese. This location offers many photo opportunities including historic buildings, autumn northwoods and Lake Superior landscapes, mountain biking, natural resources, and wildlife.
Please Note: A State of Michigan Recreation Passport is required to access Fort Wilkins State Park with a vehicle. Each participant is responsible for acquiring their own recreational passport. The Recreation Passport is required for all Michigan state parks, trails, historic sites, boat launches, harbors, and more. Visit Michigan.gov/RecreationPassport for more details and to purchase.
- Be sure to dress appropriately. Weather conditions in Copper Harbor in early autumn can be quite variable. We would recommend that you dress in layers so you are ready for both warm and cool conditions.
- This walk will only be cancelled due to thunderstorms but if that happens, an update will be sent out to all registered participants.
- Cellphone service in the Copper Harbor area is low to non-existent.
Following the walk, participants are welcome to gather at a local restaurant (TBD) to discuss the day and to network/socialize with other photographers.Join Walk
