Awesome trail!!

beautiful fall colors.

Greenstone not for the mild hiker. Took 5 boys and two adults on four day hike. Should of make it a six day. Shelters are at Rock Harbor and Windigo only. Beautiful site.

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.

Beautiful fall colors

Fun loop!!! Such a beautiful hike!

Excellent multi-day hiking trail with stunning views, great swimming spots and great rustic camping.

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.

Moderately challenging. Firetower at campsite 38 offers some stunning views of Smokey mountain ridges.

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!

What else can I say! National treasure

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!

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 !!

This is another trail we've done since our children were young and now are in their late teens and one in his early 20's they all still love it as do we. Beautiful views, rocks to climb on, wild ponies, and several trails to choose from once you are up there. We enjoy the Mt. Rogers hike, but bring sturdy shoes!

good trail. easy to follow with some common sense. allitle more challenging with swollen creekbeds.

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

We just completed this hike in August. It was our first backpacking trip and we had an amazing time! It was my husband and I and our 2 children ages 11 and 13. We did it in 4 days, 3 nights. Our garmin watches clocked it at 48 miles, but that included the distance to and from our campsites, side trails, trips to "toilets" etc. It is claimed to be 42 miles, I believe. I feel it was a great choice for a first backpacking trip because aside from the beautiful views, the sites all have ample bear locker storage, there is plenty of water available (just bring a filter), and pit toilets at most campsite areas. Also, the areas of the trail that are scenic points and accessible by parking lots and drive-in campgrounds gave opportunities for getting rid of trash and bathrooms! We went from Grand Sable Visitor Center to Munising Falls Visitor Center, and used Altran to shuttle us. We had no problems and we felt glad we went westward. The entire trail was beautiful and scenic, but the last half was really the best. I can't recommend this trail enough.

Thru-hiked Isle Royale via the Greenstone last summer and it was a life changing experience.

Fantastic backpacking loop. Definitely challenging. I went clockwise and hot straight uphill the first day, felt like forever to do 6 miles but I got there mid day. Camped by the watch tower(you need permits to back country camp!!!) and watched the sunrise over the great smoky mountains. Next day was allllll down hill but a much more mild grade. Got to finish it off with a little cliff jumping right near the end-that counts as a shower right?

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!!

Grayson is spectacular! This is an easy loop with amazing views and wild ponies! Even if you aren't very fit you could do this loop and it's worth it. Take your camera!

We hiked this loop trail today. Started at 9am and finished at 330. Beautiful views of the cliffs and crashing waves. Majestic walks through the woods with beautiful birch trees arching overhead. We went left from the parking lot and saw mosequito falls. Got to the water and looked over the cliffs about 11am. So many majestic views walking along the cliffs. Had lunch sitting on Indian head cliff. We had originally planned to continue up to spray falls. But we were too tired and it would have added 3 miles out and back. So we skipped it and went to chapel falls and made it back in about 6.5 hrs. It was a perfect hike. Just be sure to bring a lot of bug repellant and water.

Wonderful

As far as I am concerned, this is the best hike you can do in Michigan.

The best section of the trail runs from Chapel Beach to Miners Castle. However, the whole lakeshore trail is beautiful and worth doing.

I started at the Au Sable trailhead and went west to Munising falls. I decided on going through the Grand Dunes - the actual trail skirts past the south of the dunes. The dunes are certainly difficult, but the views are absolutely killer once you reach the lake.

I went in mid August and the bugs were not a problem at all. My biggest complaints are how disgusting the campsites were - there were piles of human feces and paper not 25 ft. from the sites I camped at, and it was everywhere. Additionally, all of the sites are communal and isolation/seclusion isn't really a thing.

The trail itself is absolutely breathtaking.

Beautiful - rain or shine! Prepare to be out there for the long haul though and bring water and maps!

This was a great hike with beautiful views. We had no issues with mosquitos. The trail needs additional markers.
