Description

This hiking loop features two waterfalls and nearly five miles of cliffside views in Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.

There are two campgrounds accessible to backpackers for those looking to spend the night. The section along the cliffs offers views of arches, coves, and towering sandstone formations carved by Lake Superior.

The sections through the forest offer views of Mosquito Falls and Chapel Falls, and are easily accessible as out-and-back style hikes if desired.
