Trail is accurately described below. It's not the premiere trail of Isle Royal but a good place to start as it connects with the harbor and ferry. Daisy farms is a roughly 8 miles into this trial and is a great place to stop for the night. Backpacking isn't the only way to experience this trail as canoes and kayaks are available to rent and you can follow the trail on the water.

beautiful trail that takes you right along Lake Superior. I would recommend this trail over the greenstone, as the Rock Harbor Trail is far more picturesque. Cairns on the rock faces help to mark the trail. Overall the trail is fairly flat and easy, with the exception of several rock faces which can become very slippery when wet. The rock faces are easy to traverse, but just slow movement a little as it takes more effort to keep balance.

Look for cairns on the lakeshore rock faces, as some areas of the trail are poorly marked.
