Trails takes you to a nice lookout. Trail was overgrown at some spots and we left with a few ticks. Although not the most challenging trail, there are plenty of rocks and roots to scramble over.

Enjoyable lollipop loop. Once you get to the loop portion there are some nice views to enjoy, a high up vista and access down to the water. Very buggy today. Saw a garter snake and heard a lot of wood thrushes. Follow my instagram for more adventures @julie_journeys

Totally beautiful! The pine trees and hike were serene and the view was so worth it! Nice place for a picnic!

Really great hike in Ash River Center area. Bugs were low and everything marked well. Great overlook and spots that got your heart pumping!

slick rocks and roots a little challenging, couple of views quite nice though nothing caused me to break out the camera. Though it cant be helped... the BUGS made a solid 4 to a 3.

a Lovely trail with a great overlook at the end of the loop. we encountered a few patches of snow left over but nothing was impassable. though I would make sure to have waterproof boots as the melting snow and thawing ground made the trail quite muddy with some standing water still in a few spots. again nothing impassable. the thawing lake was a great view and we saw no one the whole time. this was a great quick afternoon hike.

This trail offers great views of the lake and bay. We hiked in August and overgrown vegetation was on parts of the trail. Bring bug spray!

Lake Kabetogama is beautiful so the loop in the middle of the trail is beautiful however I went in late June and it had recently rained so the mosquitos and bugs were RELENTLESS not allowing us to stop and enjoy it. Also if you are seeking wildlife this isn’t the best one at Voyageurs

Some good up and downs to get the heart pumping. Be careful of wet moss and wet rocks.

My review is from the perspective of an amateur landscape/wildlife photographer. There are no "Wow" moments for photographers along this trail. You can see Lake Superior along the trail but it's always through the trees. There is only one open spot with a good view of the lake and it's just average composition. Wildflowers are not abundant and wildlife doesn't frequent the area. In summary, if your interest is photography, there's nothing special to photograph on this trail you can't find elsewhere. Spend your limited time in Voyagers somewhere else.

This is a beautiful trail, with some roots and rocks as previous review described, but well worth it once you get to the awesome overlook of Lake Kabetogama. The trail crosses a 2 lane service road that was not marked on the voyageurs national park map, so don't be surprised if you see an unexpected road to cross.

I did see a family of otters. Photo didn't come out.

Rough terrain. Many roots and rocks in trail, which is well-defined and well-marked. Two half log benches along the way to take a rest and enjoy the views, which are beautiful.

Nice trail that gives you some good views of Kabetogama Lake. Saw some deer while on the way to the loop. Can also be accessed from the visitor center parking area.
