Love this Hike, it’s one of my favorite spots to hike along the SHT. Beautiful views, great work out, lots of ups and downs, little streams and cricks, trees, wild flowers, and beautiful views. We bring our dog and let him hike off leash on this trail. It’s a great one!

Nice trail for an urban area. Views of harbor and neighborhoods below. Birds flying overhead. Used Uber to return to my car. Great way to spend a few hours.

A classic to hike whenever I have a free afternoon. Haven't done the whole trail but have spent nights camping and doing day hikes. Fun for a local

Nice hike through the woods, with some views of Lake Superior. Several trails criss-cross over each other & run close together, so it's hard to stay on your intended trail. However, it's nice to have a bunch of trails so close together if you have time to wander around. We saw a recently-killed fawn carcass on the trail, so I wouldn't bring my dog. Trail looks heavily used by, and well suited for mountain biking.

I have hiked a number of sections on this trail. It is easily accessible, with numerous trail-heads with designated parking areas, and campsites every few miles, along it's entire 275 miles. The trail is well marked along a wide variety of terrain and environments. The landscape and scenic overlooks are magnificent. Whether for a day hike, or extended camping trip, this is an awesome trail to hop on any time of year.

Live not even 5 minutes away from Elys Peak, great spot! Beautiful view! Also great for a tougher trail run!
