Great hike. Beautiful inland views with large nature trees. As with any of the trials here in the porcupine mountains. Get used to tree roots and mud puddles

Beautiful. Highly recommend staying the night on the campsite that's on the point of the lake. Watch for bears on the cliff infront of you!

Love this loop. Stayed on this trial several times. The hike is quite hard going uphill sometimes, especially if it's early in your trip and your backpack is heaviest. But beautiful views and river crossings. Highly recommend if you don't mind getting a little muddy.

amazing view. pristine wilderness. vast.

Amazing hike with Fall leaves changing. Beautiful, well maintained trail through the forest. We got a late start so had to head back early when it got dark, lots of rocks and roots to trip you up in the dark.

if you stick to the West River trail it's a boardwalk the whole way with a lot of stairs but gorgeous views of both Manabehzo and Manido Falls!

We had a great time on this trail. Great views as you leave the Lake of the Clouds scenic outlook and beautiful falls as you near the mouth of the Big Carp.

The trail continues from Correction trail to Lake of the Clouds. Elevation change but great views. To Boy Scout group on the trail and had a great time. There is one wet crossing on Washington's Creek.

This was a challenging hike with the trail ending at the shores of Lake Superior. Some hikers choose to camp by the lake but we chose to hike out in the same day. It was tiring but very rewarding. The most challenging part of the hike is the amount of tree roots that you have to navigate over. There were long periods of time where you could not look up in fear of tripping. There are two areas of the trail where you have to cross over the river by jumping from rock to rock or if it's shallow you can walk through it and cool off your feet! One of several trails in the porcupine mountains worth doing!
