I thoroughly enjoyed this trail. Once we were out of eyesight of the Visitor's Center, the only people we saw were a sea kayaking couple. The trail itself it not too strenuous, however the hardest part was staying on the trail as it can be hard to find with brush overgrowth. The trail crosses a box canyon, the first night's camp site was near a waterfall and a nice place for a swim! The second night's camp was along Lake Superior. Here we saw a moose eating out of the river-- he was on the opposite bank (fortunately!). We also enjoyed the Norther Lights. If you want a place all to yourself this is it!
