Driving directions

From I-75, exit 282 and MI-32, zero odometer.

0.0   I-75 and MI-32 - go West on MI-32.
2.3   Road name changes to C-42 - go straight (west).
4.8   C-42 turns left (south) - turn right onto Franchowiak Road,
        then immediately left (west) onto an unmarked dirt road.

Hiking directions

Get permission to climb, then skirt the plant and go about 0.3 mile northwest to the ridge. I topped out on the southwest point (the spot elevation 1,489 ft), then went northeast 0.3 mile to cover the two other points of 1,476+ ft.

An easy county.
