Summiteer Hiking Stick Medallion – Mount Arvon, Michigan

Display your pride as a Scout with this Mount Arvon Summiteer Hiking Stick Medallion. This quality medallion, which adheres directly to your hiking stick, commemorates your bold ascent to the summit of Michigan’s highest natural point. The perfect symbol of your determination, this medallion is not only great to show off, but it will also serve as a reminder of all you can achieve when try hard and do your best.

Rising 1,300 feet above the shore of Lake Superior, which lies just ten miles to the north, Mount Arvon is located in the north central part of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula region. Because of its location, trails up to the mount’s summit are often packed with snow for most of the year. During milder weather the peak can be reached from a number of easily navigated hiking routes, including one exceptionally windy half mile trail. Mount Arvon is a few miles from Mount Curwood, which for years had been designated as Michigan\'s highest spot until a resurvey in 1982 with modern technology determined that Mount Arvon is a mere one foot taller than Mount Curwood.

Minted with an antique bronze finish, and imbued with brown and black enamel, this medallion depicts a sign welcoming the weary climber to the top of the mount, along with its elevation of 1,979 feet. The Mount Arvon Summiteer Hiking Stick Medallion is a durable and unique reminder of this momentous achievement on your Scouting® journey.
