Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park (60,000 acres) is one of the few remaining large wilderness areas in the Midwest. Towering virgin timber, secluded lakes, and miles of wild rivers and streams make a visit to the "Porkies" a trip to remember. Black bears are common in the Porkies.

Loved this trail! Beautiful waterfalls and wildflowers. Ended up by the lake around sunset. I loved seeing the river flowing into Lake Superior. Would definitely do this trail again.

Interesting interpretive trail that teaches you about the copper mining that occurred in the area in the 1800's. Beautiful well marked trail following a river.

One of my favorite, short trails.

Beautiful trail, the 1 mile interpretive trial loop is amazing. Right along the river.

Unmatched beauty. My only regret is living so far away.

Backpacked this trail with the woman. Perfect early fall weather and hiking along Lake superior was beatiful. best part was camping along the lake and soaking feet in the ice cold water at the end of the day.

beautiful waterfalls. love the simple catwalks to the different view points.
