Trout Point trail is very challenging wilderness trail. There are downed trees, many of which had the trail marker on them. Bring a compass to navigate the trail and do not attempt unless prepared. The trail goes across Stockton Island to Trout Point. Trout Pt has one individual campsite and a small beach, no privy at this time.Show more
