The southern half the 2.4 miles trail is pretty tough as it is coming off of Greenstone Ridge. Not the most scenic of the trails but it takes you to a nice camping area in Lane Cove. The camping area in my opinion is the highlight of this hike. You'll be right on the water with a chance to get into Lake Superior. (extremely cold water btw) The red foxes and squirrels in Lane Cove will steal your food so watch out. :)
Nice trail down to Lane Cove and Lane Cove camp which has five sites, all with a great view of the Lane Cove area of Lake Superior. Trail drops quickly from Greenstone Ridge with several switchbacks. Once off the ridge, there is diverse terrain with boardwalks through the wet areas. Moose use the trail too. Loon are plentiful on the water and call throughout the night. Great for sunsets.
