Managed by Forest Service, the Sturgeon River Gorge Wilderness surrounds the deepest ravine in Michigan. Here, the Sturgeon and Little Silver rivers create a rugged land, filled with canyons, rapids, waterfalls, oxbows and ponds. Totaling more than 14,000 acres, this section of the Ottawa National Forest is located nearby the Keweenaw Peninsula in the far reaches of Michiganís Upper Peninsula. Here, the forest is thick with old growth hemlock, red and white pine, sugar maples, birch and basswood. Keep in mind this is the wilds of the Upper Peninsula and there's a good chance one could see otters, beaver, mink, fox, deer and black bear.
