This was a fantastic hike! The views of the river are gorgeous and ever changing - much like the landscape. I recommend doing the loop counterclockwise. The views of Lake Superior at the very end are a breathtaking bonus! The bridge at the river crossing is still out, BUT is very narrow at that point and we had an easy time crossing. This hike took about 4 hours...and my GPS read that it was more like 7.5 miles to do the loop. Well worth it!

The bridge is out indefinitely while the SHTA raises funds to build a new bridge. This is still true as of December 2017. Check for updates on

A bit muddy in sections, but overall a great hike. the bridge is gone at the crossing, but we were able to pick our way across on the rocks down stream of the bridge site.

Pretty cool trail that follows the split rock river for about 2 miles. I warn you that the bridge is out at the point where it crosses the split rock river. Our intentions were to take the loop around but our trip turned into an in and out due to the missing bridge. Cool hike none the less, wet in some spots but still worth the hike.

Gorgeous terrain and could be viewed as a challenging hike for some. Allow the entire day to take in natures finest.
