Upper Michigan Lake Superior and Lake Glazon Waterfront parcel for sale. This 25+ Acre property is located just about a mile west of Agate Harbor, in Keweenaw County of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. It has 1,121 Feet of north-facing frontage on Lake Superior, and 669 Feet of south-facing frontage, and over 600 Feet of north facing frontage on the shores of Lake Glazon. Lake Glazon is a non-public, non-motorized lake between 25 to 31 acres in size. It is supposed to have some great Perch and Walleye fishing, and provides fine canoeing and kayaking. Immediately to the west of Lake Glazon is the 394 acre Brockway Mountain Audubon Sanctuary. This preserve is wooded with a mixture of northern conifers and hardwoods and provides a preserve for wildlife and the birds and waterfowl that pass through this major fly-way. Birdlife includes migrating birds of prey such as Broad-wing and Sharp-shinned Hawks and the occasional Golden Eagle. Twinflower, many orchids, plants of rock outcroppings and wet forest are found here. The nearest town to the west is Eagle Harbor, a quaint Lake Superior harbor town. It was once a Copper Mining boom town in the early history of the Upper Peninsula. Because there were no roads into this area everything was shipped there by boat. Supplies, settlers, and prospectors came in by boat and copper was shipped out from the Eagle Harbor, Central, Delaware, Copper Falls and other mines. You can watch the "Lakers" (Great Lakes freighters) and "Salties" (ocean going foreign ships) as they pass by upbound to Duluth or Canadian ports, or downbound to Sault Ste. Marie, and the other Great Lakes. This area is a great place for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, or snowmobiling on hundreds of miles of groomed trails through hilly terrain. Just minutes from the property along the two-lane road that hugs the lake are Agate Beach, Esrey Roadside Park, and Keweenaw Shore Nature Sanctuary. Rock hunters will find samples of Banded, Bull's-Eye, and Lake Superior Agates; Thomsonites; and other semi-precious stones along these beaches. These areas also provide hiking, biking, bird watching, and nature trail exploring. The property being offered for sale shares characteristics similar to The Joseph and Mary Lizzadro Preserve which is a mile to the east. This Preserve is known for a high quality bedrock plant community in the Michigan Natural Features Inventory Study of Bedrock Shorelines. If you love photography, you will find Lake Superior photo opportunities in every season. Sunsets and spectacular Aurora Borealis displays, Star views, and jagged Ice Sculptures which form along the shore over the frozen ice provides tons of material to capture. Be sure to bring your camera. If water sports are your passion, you will find wading, swimming, boating, and sea-kayaking, along this shoreline. Recreational scuba divers will find many wrecks, where a deep hole is just offshore in the Keweenaw Underwater Preserve. Snowmobile Trail No. 3 and many ORV Trails are near by. Mount Bohemia, about six miles south as the crow flies, offers deep powder skiing for all skill levels - and there are area Nordic Ski Trails to explore. Nearby Corporate CFA Lands provide walk-in hunting for Black bear, White tail deer, and Small game. The 25+ Acre parcel being offered for sale features slabs of conglomerate rock and huge basalt boulders along 1,121 feet of undeveloped shoreline on Lake Superior. These Pre-Cambrian rock formations were formed by volcanic action, and are some of the oldest formations on earth. The views are spectacular. South of M-26, where most of the acreage is located, is boreal and mixed hardwood forests, with some lower land. Nowhere is the land so beautiful, the sky so blue, the woods so green, and the air so pure - offering breathtaking sunsets that ultimately disappear behind Lake Superior's shimmering horizon - A Naturalist's Wonderland.
