This place is beautiful and is an absolute must for anybody who loves great scenery and hiking in Wisconsin! My favorite part is one of the waterfalls that you can go behind and also another waterfall that you can swim under. I had a group of five and we all had a blast! We drove five hours to get there but it was more than worth it. This was by far one of the most exciting Wisconsin hiking trips yet! I can't wait to go back in a couple months and explore even more of it!!!

We went hiking with walking toddlers from age of 4 with Hike it baby group from Madison, they were able to Hike all the way to the waterfalls, this is a busy trail after 10am

Beautiful trail!

The best way to see the sea caves period is by kayak, but the best way on land is this hike. Starting at Meyer's Beach, the first 0.7 miles is boardwalk. After the boardwalk ends, the trail dips steeply in and out of many ravines. First sea cave is at 1.8 miles, but best view is at The Bowl at 2.2 miles. Moderate is the right difficulty rating for this hike, but that partly depends on how far you go. Trail does not loop. Overall, best mainland hike in the Apostle Islands.

AllTrails lists this as an easy hike but I'd call this moderate because it's got at least two steep hills. The views are nice once you're up nice and high but not spectacular. It's a pretty combination of woods and prairie and is a nice little workout. Very enjoyable.
