Take Wisconsin Highway 42 to its end at Northport, the tip of the Door County peninsula. Take the Washington Island Ferry [exit DNR] to Washington Island. The ferry carries people, vehicles, bicycles, and freight. Take County Highway W to the opposite end of Washington Island. Leave your vehicle or bike there and take the passengers-only Rock Island Ferry to Rock Island.

Spectacular hike!!! Great views as you roll through semi dense forest and open lake views and even sandy beachfronts. People at the lighthouse were beyond friendly. Took our dog and it was no problem on ferries or on the island.

This little Island at the tip of the Door Peninsula is a splendid way to spend a weekend hiking and camping. The trail is moderate. Scenery varies from hardwoods to sandy beach and of course rocky bluffs. Best camp sites are sites B and C. I believe site c was voted the most beautiful camp sites in Wisconsin. Views of the lake and rocky beach. Bring water shoes.
