McCormick Wilderness

Three generations of McCormick's, the descendants of Cyrus McCormick,  inventor of the reaping machine, held the deed to this area before  Gordon McCormick willed the land to the U.S. Forest Service. McCormick  Wilderness has recovered from the logging era that ended in the early  1900s. Today, you'll find a mixture of northern hardwoods and lowland  conifers interspersed with small patches of towering white pine,  Michigan's state tree. Moose have been reintroduced here and are  relatively common sights by Michigan standards. Other forest dwellers  include black bears, pine martens, otters, minks, foxes, deer,  squirrels, and hares. Bird-watchers enjoy loons and woodpeckers as well  as thriving populations of many other feathered species.

 Straddling the divide between Lake Superior and Lake Michigan, a region  ranging from nearly level terrain to rocky cliffs. McCormick's water is what draws most visitors, with the Huron, Dead, Peshekee, and the Wild  and Scenic Yellow Dog Rivers all have part of their headwaters within  the wilderness. Many cascading waterfalls on the Yellow Dog make it  un-navigable. The Yellow Dog is one of few Eastern rivers designated  "Wild." Eighteen small lakes add sparkle to the landscape. Trout, pike,  and bass live here, but only in small numbers due to the  less-than-fertile waters.
