Last day of Nov and the trail is a combination of ice, snow, mud and water. Much wetter than I anticipated. Slippery in spots. Nice views of the cliffs and several waterfalls. No one else on trail and no fresh tracks.

Fun loop!!! Such a beautiful hike!

Beautiful and easy hike!

Great hike with a beautiful waterfall. Bonus cemetery at the entrance

Nice trail. Great falls.

Had a great hike

loved this trail

great trail and pretty views

AMAZING! I didn't know Lake Superior was so beautiful. We did the loop in early September and went counterclockwise. The beach was great. Trail was busy but thinned out toward the end. Lots of look-outs. Mosquito falls was muddy but fun. We stayed in Munising hiking for a week and I think I only got 2 mosquito bites the whole time. I would say moderate is accurate for this trail. Took 5 hours to do the trail and that's including an hour stop at the beach for lunch. 100% would recommend this hike.

Great hike out to the sea caves. About 1.8 miles out with 0.7 miles on easy to traverse wood planks.

Beautiful sight! Love the South Shore and looking forward to doing it again.

Without a question, probably one of the best hikes in Michigan. Super easy trail to follow and the colors were still amazing.

This trail is beautiful. We hiked this trail on October 5 and there was quite a bit of fall color. There were no bugs at all and the weather was a little chilly, but not too bad overall. On the chapel trail there were a few parts where it was muddy, but it was not too difficult. However, the mosquito trail portion seemed to be mostly mud and water. There had been a storm the day before, so that definitely made everything wetter. It took us about five hours to finish the loop and the views along the rocks are not to be missed. Chapel rock and Beach were two of our favorites especially when you have a little bit of fall color on top of the rocks. There were not too many people on the trail and it was very peaceful. At times it was completely silent, which was a little spooky :) Overall I would highly recommend this trail, but make sure you have good waterproof boots!

Very easy hike. I’d have to say that after hiking Meyers Beach and Lost Creek falls this was my least favorite. I think this would be a great hike for families with younger kids. Fairly easy and well
Maintained.

Excellent moderate hike. There are a lot of small hills which is why this is considered a “moderate.” In some cases it’s almost easier to just walk alongside some of the stairs that have been built. There were a lot of families on this hike who seemed to be managing just fine. The views at the end at spectacular. Keep a close eye on younger hikers at the end of the trail.

Very easy hike. Falls at the end are great. These falls are similar to Twin Falls locates just outside of Port Wing. Be careful on the way out and make sure you end up on the same trail you walked in on. We ended up on the ATV trail on the way but but fortunately it intersects with the actual trail.

Absolutely a gorgeous hike in the fall. With plenty of places to stop and take pictures, catch your breath from the hills or just the beauty, I’d say give yourself a good 7-8 hours to hike this trail. Keep an eye on weather leading up to your trip because plenty of low lying spots get muddy. Temps can vary, coastal temps are much cooler than inland so wear layers. No wildlife was seen but plenty of people. Only serious hikers should attempt the loop, most regulars turn back at he beach so it will be quiet and lonely walking the cliffs to mosquito falls. Enjoy the peace and solitude this trail brings. Quite a special Michigan adventure!

Easy couple hour hike. Amazing views of the shorelines and caves. Fun trail and lots of places to set up a hammock to relax along the way.

I went from Mosquito around to chapel. Very picturesque. I got confused a couple time where the trail wasnt marked well. But hey!! I made it out !!

Amazing hike but with the side hikes for the views ended up being 12 miles. Was worth every step. Truly amazing

Really great, easy hike through the woods. Beautiful all the way through and the views of Superior at the end are amazing! Perfect for a quick trek.

Great hike, awesome views!

Had a lot of rainfall the day I went and the falls were powerful! Beautiful to see!

I hiked this trail just last Sunday! It was absolutely the best trail, ever!!! The views were gorgeous, the trail was well-marked, etc. I cannot say enough good about this trail...it’s simply a “must do!” Happy hiking!!! :)

Oh! And the bugs....there weren’t any!!

Probably the best falls in Munising, next to Minors falls. Sort walk to get there, a little rooted but not bad.

If your kayak trip gets canceled or postponed, this a good hike even in the rain!

falls are definitely something to see. very nice trail.

Easy out and back worth the effort.
