Beautiful ate for a day Hike

The whole trail is NOT wheelchair accessible. I would not recommend the east loop of this trail. I was really disappointed.

I have hiked a number of sections on this trail. It is easily accessible, with numerous trail-heads with designated parking areas, and campsites every few miles, along it's entire 275 miles. The trail is well marked along a wide variety of terrain and environments. The landscape and scenic overlooks are magnificent. Whether for a day hike, or extended camping trip, this is an awesome trail to hop on any time of year.

Great hiking trail for walking or running possibly an eagle sighting, clean and open, best time to go is in the fall or winter and if you go during the winter, you can walk behind the waterfall, definitely worth the time.

Beautiful park

Great dog park!

I run on the 'off road biking' trails on the edge of the river. I start on one side of the park, then run to as far as the dirt paths take me and retrace my steps back. It's a nice run if you hate running on tar/ cement. It's also nice to be in the trees by the river during Fall.

Absolutely beautiful during the fall! Can pick difficulty depending on trail.

I've hiked all of the parks along the north shore and this one will always be ranked towards the top! The hike to Lookout Mountain is so worth the views you get at the top! I try to make this hike every time I travel north. Even just wading in the river down by it's mouth to the Lake Superior is gorgeous. Also, lots of good hammock hangs over the river!
