This is a beautiful and spectacular trail. We took the 3+ mile trail to Chapel Beach and then hiked along the North Country Trail on the top of Pictured Rocks for about 4 miles and finally back to the trailhead. We did not do Chapel Falls because we previously hiked it. The total was about 10 miles and it took about 6 hours since we stopped so many times to take in the amazing views. One of our group rated it right up there with the Grand Canyon. Would highly recommend this part of the trail.

You can see Chapel Falls, Rock and Beach by walking about 6.5-7 total miles. The description makes it sound like 9+ may be required, but that is true only if you want to see Mosquito Falls too.

Make sure to hit the beach up as the view is stunning.

Awesome great views - parts of the trail are muddy with reasonable work around. Otherwise perfect!

Fairly easy trail that becomes very muddy after some rain. Cool little beach at the end of the hike out. Great scenery!

We did the loop without the Mosquito Falls portion. Not particularly strenuous but lengthy. The portions along the edge of the cliffs are awesome, but the parts out there and back can be a little dull and were very muddy when we went.

This was so worth the hike!! We did a portion of this trail last year along pictured rocks. There is also a nice rustic campground over here for backpackers. The signs for bear sightings made us a little nervous though! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Nice trail. More easy than moderate. Gravel road park entrance is pot hole hell on a motorcycle!

Best hike ever, so beautiful and the campsites were so nice, no fires on the sites with this loop though.
