The second locality (Site 2), a small, southeastfacinggranite hill, (SE¼:SE¼Sec.26) is about 1 mi (1.6 km)nrtheast of the bridge and lies about 600 ft (200 m) south of the road.
Big Eric/s Crossing is a famous fishing spot on the HuronRiver, and Baraga County maintains a campground at the bridge.The river is high from late September until late May, so theoutcrops along the river are best visited during the middle andlate summer.
Sites 2 and 3 are on private land. However, so long as visitsare brief, and visitors continue to respect the surface and theexposures, property owners in the Upper Peninsula tend not topost their lands.
