Very nice hike and the trail is well marked.

We started at the south bridge and went all the way to Lake Superior. Took us 4 hours. Need to be strong and in fairly good shape. The river itself has very little current. And winds a lot. Places to stop along the way for a quick snack and break. Going all the way to Lake Superior was part of our adventure, to say we did it. I recommend Northwoods Kayak and canoe rental. I also recommend the south bridge to the north bridge. About 2.5 to 3 hours. Skip the trip from the north bridge to superior.

long walk but worth it

My wife and baby hiked this trail. I would consider it moderate. The end featured a bridge. I was only upset because we could not find the waterfall.

Lots of insects jumping into the eye even though we used insect repellent. But very beautiful.

There were some tight spots, but a fun trip.

Great light hike, about 1.1miles. Starts in the Haymeadow dispersed campground and goes back to the falls. The falls while small are fun and you can walk up and around in the river. the slabs of rock are really cool.

If you are going to the falls you will need an older truck or jeep. After Rock River Rd the roads (more like trails) are narrow two tracks. We had a full size truck and had to turn around. We never actually got to the falls but I don't want anyone to head back there not knowing what to expect. The forest is pristine otherwise and was a nice albeit bumpy drive.

Well maintained trail with many loops

I've hiked a few segments of this trial. I personally like to start at Trout Pond (a bit north) and head south. That has been my favorite route. There are a few brooks to enjoy and some nice hills. It's also very secluded, during that hike i didn't see a single person.
There's a new "connector" for the North Country Trail, that this one synchs up with. Just follow the blue rectangles.
Also, there's a beaver dam on one of the segments.

Awesome mountain bike trail circuit of around 9 to 10 miles that goes by several lakes and streams, it is very well maintained and the trail gets changed once in a while so it is always fun to see what's different. I've ridden this one many times and still don't get sick of it. There are several camp grounds that the trail goes right through. Terrain is is sandy in spots along with many exciting climbs and descents.

Bruno's Run is a lovely day-hiking trail, accessible all year round for hiking, snowshoeing and cross country skiing. Passes small and larger inland lakes, follows near McKeever Cabin (rentable from the US Forest Service, crosses the outlet of Fish Lake and follows Indian River for a distance.

Better for day hiking than mtn biking. Lots of roots than make the uphills difficult and beat you up or at least slow the descents. Overall a moderate difficulty. The trail is occasionally soft and often covered w leaves. nonetheless a beautiful place to be outdoors.

Bay de Noc -Grand Island Trail (note correct spelling) This is a long distance trail crossing the narrow neck of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, from Lake Michigan to Lake Superior. A variety of habitats, terrain, and vistas. Very little elevation change. Passes quiet backcountry lakes, former logging camps, rivers, original groves of hemlocks and white pines. We traversed it in a series of day hikes over several months, but friends have backpacked and camped on the trail. Well-marked, maps available through Hiawatha National Forest. Although parts of the trail are also open to horse travel, you will meet very few other travellers on this trail through the north woods.
