This a great day hike. There are still some snow and Ice patches which on the side of the mountain can be a challenge. It’s lovely this time of year without the leaves because you can see all the ridges in the maple areas. The mud was minimal which says a lot for this trail.

Had some nice overlooks of Lake Superior and miles of forests, and views of pristine lakes and rivers, but unfortunately we were up to our shins in unavoidable mud right around the halfway point. I would suggest starting at the White Sky trailhead and hiking to Lake Agnes out-and-back, if you're just looking for a slightly moderate day hike.

First to Review

Varying bike with flats, moderate and steep grades. Only one great view in this short distance, but the trail is pretty dry and wide enough.
