INCREDIBLE. I did a simple overnight at the campground by the cove and could not be happier. Great wildlife, great scenery, great hiking. One of my favorite trails/parks of all time!

This loop is great for either: A) a moderate full day loop, or B) as I did it, a leisurely two day hike with an overnight stay at the cove. The camp has numerous sites that are fairly well spaced out, and is pretty well situated for sunsets. You can take a brief walk off trail to get to a nice cliff-side view of Superior and Canada, or even go for a bone-chilling swim. Would definitely come back!

Most of the trail is hiking through the woods. Near the cove you start hiking near the coast and the views are pretty. Path is pretty well laid out, just narrow.
