Modérate hike with wonderful views. Spring sun was wonderful

Incredible view of the lakes! Awesome hike.

Beautiful hike, lots of mushrooms in the fall. Great views!

Got in the fall at sunrise or sunset... beautiful

Amazing views and great way to spend a day or overnight.

We actually did a loop starting with the Humpback Trail then connected with the Manitou River Trail campsite #6 is a great place to stop and have a snack... great rock to rest on...campsite number 10 is perfectly beautiful...the trail is rugged... sometimes it just disappears and you have to bushwhack your own path.. climbing over trees and under or whatever in between...
I think about campsite #12 we took off on the Matt Willis Trail and continued onto the Lake Benson trail around the west side of the lake... once you get to this trail it’s a piece of cake a boardwalk all the way around the lake until you get to the road which takes you back to the parking lot. The trail is moderately hard just because the footing is difficult... ferns cover the path sometimes waist high,(so you can’t always see where your foot is going)ground was pretty moist, slippery uneven rocky trail... otherwise not too difficult... went the end of June we had a perfect weather window... it started raining as we left... we had the place to ourselves

We hiked this section in August from Lutsen down to Temperance River State Park. Our journey included Oberg Mountain and Carleton Peak over 2 days. Great views of Lake Superior from various points along the route. More elevation change along this section than most anywhere else along the SHT.

The terrain is really muddy right now, but the views are phenomenal! May be the best view I've ever seen hiking in MN.

It was beautiful and a nice moderate walking trail. It was quite muddy on some walking trails along the way, but it was well worth it! Peaceful and quiet. Worth the view during fall season!! Must go :)

Easy, enjoyable hike with some great overlooks of North Shore fall color.

The Trout Creek bridge on the west side of the Cascade River is out and the creek can't be crossed due to recent heavy rain. As a result, west side of this loop trail is currently inaccessible.

Muddy. A good out and back day hike

I still want to give it a 4 only because I know it has to be a beautiful trail! I was bummed out that I had to turn around pretty early because of the mud. Never got to the lakes or even the first camp. Heads up it's muddy!

Pretty good overall, but the last 7-8 miles of the hike (which ends at George Manitou state park) was fairly uneventful with little to see. Mostly just a trail leading through the timber with very thick growth all around and a ton of mud to hike through!
I'm more of a waterfall or scenic overlook kinda guy! Definitely tired us out though, but with 275 more miles of the SHT to explore, I won't be back to this stretch of it. Saw nearly zero wildlife...a few chipmunks and squirrels round out the list!

Did as a group and was a great hike for everyone. The views of Lake Superior were breathtaking!

nice views from parking to lakes; I would call it "difficult" for most other than experienced rugged terrain hikers.

We winter hiked this trail and loved the view of Lake Superior. Ice crampons are a must in winter months for safety.

Good trails for the views, pretty heavily travelled, maybe too much so for my tastes. Good overlooks and some steep dropoffs to get the adrenaline going. I wish it was longer!

fun trail there is a cool waterfall at the first campsite a a steep hill down to Bear Lake but a nice view not very good group camping spots at Bear Lake

They say the trails in Crosby-Manitou are rugged. Believe them. Trail is hard to follow in some places, overgrown, downed trees, steep ascents and descents. Well worth it.

Nice loop or you can shuttle if you want to go one way only. Beautiful trail along the river.

Awesome hike. Lucked out on a great day. Highly recommend.

amazing trail. amazing views.

Highly recommend this portion of the trail, challenging in some areas, and it has some great views

very beautiful hike!! if you want the trails and views to yourself I recommend getting out there pretty early during the weekends! great backpack camping spots too! happy hiking! :)

One of my favorite spots on the SHT!

A relaxing hike with multiple beautiful views makes this definitely worthwhile.
