This is a great hike- we did an entire loop of 48 miles back to rock harbor, but a stop at Moskey basin is a must. There were huge white swans and tons of otters! It was a great place to take a break and relax. The night before we stayed at Daisy Farm which was a luxury because there were shelters. My now husband actually proposed to me at Daisy Farm, so I love it there a bit more because of it. Overall, it's a gorgeous hike! We had a blast and would do it again in a heart beat.

Trail is accurately described below. It's not the premiere trail of Isle Royal but a good place to start as it connects with the harbor and ferry. Daisy farms is a roughly 8 miles into this trial and is a great place to stop for the night. Backpacking isn't the only way to experience this trail as canoes and kayaks are available to rent and you can follow the trail on the water.

beautiful trail that takes you right along Lake Superior. I would recommend this trail over the greenstone, as the Rock Harbor Trail is far more picturesque. Cairns on the rock faces help to mark the trail. Overall the trail is fairly flat and easy, with the exception of several rock faces which can become very slippery when wet. The rock faces are easy to traverse, but just slow movement a little as it takes more effort to keep balance.

Look for cairns on the lakeshore rock faces, as some areas of the trail are poorly marked.
