From Calumet, head north on US-41. In Ahmeek, bear left onto scenic Cliff Drive. Here you will find the historic Cliff Mine site, which runs along the left hand side of Cliff Drive. Cliff Mine was the most productive copper mine in the United States from 1845 to 1854 and was the first profitable copper mine in Michigan. This land is open for exploration, but use caution; there are numerous streams, ponds, and hazards at this site. Cliff Drive will intersect again with US-41.
