We took the dogs and is a good trail, follow the orange tags on the trees. Is kind of complicated a couple places we had to pull out our GPS to ensure we stayed on the trail as there are multiple trails in the area. The views pf sawbust lake are incredible and the dogs jumped in for a swim!

Great trail, some serious hills in the first 1-2km, but worth it! The views are spectacular! there are some splits in the trails so pay attention to the markers. We also spotted some bear scat on one of the trails on our way down (never saw a bear though).

Awesome! Tough hike for a 65 year old but well worth it.

Tough trail with narrow planks over water. Very difficult in the rain.

The hike from 3 Mile is tough at first with so much uphill, but the view is gorgeous! A quintessential Isle Royal vista awaits.

5 stars, although the beaver dams really suck.

First 500 meters swampy/creek. Have to hop rock to rock. Trail is not often used and overgrown near Lake. Would have not found the trail without GPS.

A nice 1 hour walk. Saw 2 deer crossing the river and a wood pecker.

The highlight of this trail was seeing pitcher plants in the in bloom.

Much of the middle section of the trail is overgrown and somewhat difficult to see. I relied on the app to keep me on track and find the entrance to the more hidden parts of the loop. The views at the top were worth every bit of the work! Highly recommend. (Get ready to climb for the first 1-2 kms!)

Beautiful short trail

A good hike for those looking for a moderate challenge. Although the hike is short, it’s inclines make it somewhat of a challenge. The trail is lined with blueberries and thimble berries along the end of the trail. These provide motivation to reach the summit at Ojibway Tower. The trail has a good mixture of sun and shade and the view at its conclusion are spectacular.

Did part of the loop as an out-and-back from Windigo to Feldtmann Lake. Nice walk along Superior moving into the forest. Feldtmann Campground pitch 2 has amazing views right on the lake. Saw moose and beavers on Feldtmann Lake

I would recommend this trail for beautiful views while walking or running with your doggie. Lots of areas to let your pups in for a swim! After you cross the Arundle bridge/street (going west I believe) there is a forested area that is absolutely breathtaking. I recommend going through it as opposed to the street walk way! Enjoy!

50 miles in 5 days with my 13 year old son.. moose loons beautiful scenery. Hike the green stone ridge north and was very rocky and rooty the south end was much more hike able. Overall trip claimed 17,000 feet in elevation. Lifetime of memories. Great trip, came in on the Isle Royale sea plane. 47lbs pack to heavy recommend cutting as much weight as possibles. Great people on the trail.

Perfect for the day trip to Windigo. I’m a 31 one year old decently in shape female and I completed the route in about 1.30 hr with a 10 min lunch break at the top. No moose or other wildlife but very pretty and worth it views at the top. Follow the Feldtmann trail then climb the ridge and turn left at the cairn for the overlook!

Amazing national treasure in the largest lake in the world. Fairly Rocky and rooty to the point where you should stop if you want to look around as not to fall. The views are pretty grand when you get them, plentiful campsites, many with shelters that have bug nets. I did a 7 day backpacking trip to the island and did 130 miles total, step climbs to and from lane cove if you plan on going there, but 4 total sites, all on the water.

This was clearly unmarked and less traveled trail. We never reached our destination because the trail was so overgrown you couldn't see where you were stepping.
