Nice trail. Lots of roots and short stairs, but the payoff is worth it.

It was challenging - so many stairs up and down! But an exciting trail, very well maintained, and spectacular views. Nothing but nature sounds, and very healing to the mind and body.

HikingFeeGreat!

Walking on planks the first mile or so, then the trail gets a little bit more intense. Totally worth the views though! Dog friendly!

Great, well maintained trail with good elevation gains. Moderate difficulty, hiking poles were helpful in several areas. After a mile in the views of Lake Superior are incredible, then into a gorgeous forested path. Highly recommended!

The trail is mostly boardwalk. There where a few ravines that had board steps. There were two trees down over the trail. It is mostly shaded. One of my kids commented that it was like the jungle gym. Bring water. We were all tired/hot at the end of the hike and went swimming at Meyers Beach. it was probably one of the tougher hikes.

HikingGreat!

The first mile is boardwalk but from there, it moves into a little more difficult trail with some elevation. The view is worth it at about 1.8 miles in and if you can keep going past the first view, it gets even more stunning and less crowded!

This is a beautiful hike that takes you so right on the edge of Lake Superior. There are views of the islands, overlooks, and wooded shade. Some of the rocks are subject to erosion, so follow all guidelines and keep a few feet back from the edge!

HikingGreat!

nice trail, the first .7 miles all boardwalk then goes to nice trail, some big steps on some of the up and downs don't wear flip flops.....as I saw plenty of people do. great views of the caves from above. expect 5.5-6 miles if you go all the way to the "bowl" out and back. bring plenty of water as it is very humid until you get to the lake

Nice trail through a typical northern WI woods. Kudos to the park service for the boardwalk the first .7 miles. It’s well-done and really helps reduce impact. I could tell from the condition of the trail that most people turn back after the first couple viewpoints but it’s really worth following the trail to the “end” (it’s not really the end since the trail continues, but it’s the end of what AllTrails designates as this hike) since the last couple views are the best.
