The trails from McCargoe Cove to Hatchet Lake are my favorite in all the park! The Minong Ridge Trail has panoramic views of Lake Superior and varied, but equally beautiful, scenery and vegetation. Todd Harbor offers a nice break and great views from the North side of the island. The Hatchet Lake Trail includes a birch tree forest that is unforgettably stunning. Hatchet Lake is a great campground because it is peaceful and the lake feels like bathwater compared to Lake Superior.
