Great hike. Beautiful inland views with large nature trees. As with any of the trials here in the porcupine mountains. Get used to tree roots and mud puddles

Amazing hike with Fall leaves changing. Beautiful, well maintained trail through the forest. We got a late start so had to head back early when it got dark, lots of rocks and roots to trip you up in the dark.

We had a great time on this trail. Great views as you leave the Lake of the Clouds scenic outlook and beautiful falls as you near the mouth of the Big Carp.

The trail continues from Correction trail to Lake of the Clouds. Elevation change but great views. To Boy Scout group on the trail and had a great time. There is one wet crossing on Washington's Creek.
