A steep, hard 270 metre climb on the first 1.5 kms leads to some awesome views of Agawa Bay and majestic Lake Superior. The views are some of the best on the east Superior shore. There are lots of rocky sections requiring attention to footwork. The trail has been tagged as ‘dog’ and ‘kid’ friendly… only if they are used to tough, mid distance hikes! Normal traffic flow is clockwise, leaving a slightly more gradual descent and flat last 2 km to end the hike. Have hiked this six times… worth it every time!

This trail is well worth the work involved. Be prepared to spend the day here! this hike is not for the faint of heart. You're looking at 6km up and then 6km down. If the trail is wet at all you will want to make some extra time to ensure safety. Hiking boots are highly suggested - I wouldn't recommend running shoes for this one.
I have been here both in the summer and in the fall- The photo is from the fall - well worth the wait :)
