Greenstone Ridge is the most beautiful trail I have ever been on. The seclusion and untouched wilderness can't be matched. And seeing a couple moose was pretty cool too.

Rock Harbor Trail to Lake Richie is a great trek. Diverse terrain with beautiful views of Lake Superior, mossy forest views, wetland areas, and rocky bluffs. Lake Richie is a quiet lake where you can set up camp on one of the sites and relax on rock slabs at the waters edge watching Loon and duck.

Great place to visit. As the Nat'l Park's flagship park and as many visitors in one season as Yellowstone received in one day, Isle Royal is a great hike. If you are looking for campfires stick to the northern campsites and bring comfortable hiking shoes as much of the walking is done on slate rock.

Isle Royale is a special, remote place. If you are willing to make the journey its great!
