Nice trail with great views. A ranger recommended this route in lieu of the Rock Harbor trail as being easier, being the end of our trip. We started from the Three Mile campground, went along the Rock Harbor trail, crossed over to the Tobin trail at the connection at Suzy's Cave, and then continued to Rock Harbor for the ferry, which gave us views from both trails. The Tobin trail's ease (less rocky) was welcome at the conclusion of five days of hiking with full packs and two kids.

Great trail with views of the harbor. Part of the Scoville Point Stroll Trail which is a great 4.5 mile loop out of Rock Harbor Lodge area.

Stayed in Rock Harbor for the last week of the season in 2015. We found hedgehog, hawks wing, chanterelle, and other edible mushrooms during our stay. An old, large bull moose came through camp, too.
