Porcupine Lake Wilderness

The Porcupine Wilderness is a 4,443 acre Federally designated Wilderness Area. The North Country National Scenic Trail traverses the area from east to west. The terrain on the east half of this segment is moderately rolling with a couple of beaver dams to negotiate. The western half of this segment is decidedly more hilly.


From Cable take Cty. Hwy. M two miles east to Lake Owen Drive. Turn left (north) on Lake Owen Drive and continue 11 miles to Porcupine Lake Road (FR 213). A spur off the North Country Trail meets Lake Owen Drive about .25 mile south of Porcupine Lake Road
