The Crisp Point Lighthouse is located 37 miles from Newberry or Paradise, whichever direction you're traveling, east or west. The location for this beacon is quite remote and even though you can drive to it, the trip includes a number of winding back roads, so you'll need precise directions or you might get lost. This time of year you can head out there by snowmobile, as there are two main trails leading there. You can find directions for both the trails and the roads on the Historical Society page that I linked to above. But make sure you also take the advice at the bottom of their "directions" page:


"We do not recommend staying after dark as it is very easy to get lost on the winding roads and people and/or help are not readily available. If you have a cellular phone you may want to bring it along, although you may not be able to reach anyone."

The road is also very narrow and is loose dirt.

Great picture, I recommend the website there are a lot more pictures people have taken.

Maybe someone could post a set of Waypoints to be used with a hand held GPS unit.

One nice thing about going on cross-country skiis is that you can always follow your tracks back if you're breaking trail. Provided there's no strong wind blowing over 'em.

Some places I've skiied have signs with trail maps at intersections, with the little "you are here" mark. Glancing at the directios to Crisp Point lighthouse, too bad MDOt doesn't do that!

Bob, that is a beautiful picture of Crisp Point Lighthouse. The picture gallery of the Historical Society's amazing restoration of Crisp Point LH on the link that Mary gave is amazing, what a difference! Today's picture reminded me of the aerial photos of Gull Rock Lighthouse by E.Neil Harri featured on July 10, 2006 that so impressed me when I first found this great site last year. I reread Peter Annin's comments about the GR Lightkeepers efforts to restore Gull Rock LH and hope they are going forward smoothly. I'm going to try to find out more about that now.

One of my favorite things about living in the UP, you’re never far from a good road trip and or hike from the sounds of the city and into nature.

Beautiful Photo. My husband and some friends rode to Crisp Point about a week ago and the photos & video they took were great. Crisp Point is so peaceful. I greatful for all of those who keep it nice.
