Great trail!! Not great for overnight. There was only one established backcountry campsite that I found. That sight was also very exposed and on the side of the island that gets hit with storm fronts. Maybe there are sights on the connector trails. But definitely not waste of time. Just do it as a day hike.

One of our favorite trails. Very well marked trail and connectors. Awesome views of the lake and plenty of places to walk down to the shore.

HikingGreat!

Great trail to hike, I would consider mountain biking here too. Not many established camping sites but there are 2 really nice ones, one on top of a ridge and the other not far down by the water 2.5 miles in, going clockwise.
