5 stars, although the beaver dams really suck.

GF and I did 114 miles across all the major trails on the island in 5 days. We did the Minong Ridge from McCargoe Cove to Washington Creek (29 miles) in one day. I would recommend this hike the very least of everything we did. Despite supposedly being a ridge trail, there are very few (if any) great views because as soon as the trail gets up on the ridge, within a minute it runs back down, totally defeating the purpose of climbing it in the first place. This happens over and over again, very frustrating! And the trail actually goes down the ridge on the inland side, so you don’t even get views of Lake Superior. That, combined with the fact that this is the most difficult trail on the island, makes it a total dud. Unless you are planning on trekking the entire island for the sake of doing so, I would find a different trail instead (Greenstone Ridge is much better). We did see a wolf in the Minong Mines section, which was some consolation.

My favorite trail in Michigan!

Tough trail. Lots of ridges, up and down and up and down.
