The Thomas Family has donated this favorite outing destination to Powell Township, with the provision that the name be changed to Thomas Rock Trail. There’s now a paved, wheelchair-accessible trail winding around and up to the scenic lookout, which has a grand view looking off to the Keweenaw Peninsula. Interpretive signs identify plants along the trail. It takes about 20 minutes to walk around, up, and down. Picnic tables and restrooms are extra amenities, paid for with funds from the DNR Land Trust Fund from gas and oil revenues.
