Description

The Mount Ojibway Trail starts the Daisy Farm Campground and takes hikers inland towards Mount Ojibway and some of the best views on the island. After a gradual climb, you'll see the Greenstone Ridge towering above.

The trail descends and meets up with the Tobin Creek bed then starts its steep climb up the backbone ridge. This segment ends at Mt. Ojibway (1,136 ft). The lookout tower has some of the best views along the Greenstone Ridge, including surrounding inland lakes, Angleworm and Lake Benson. To experience the whole ridge, check out the Greenstone Ridge Trail.

Flora & Fauna

The trail is flanked by spruce, balsam fir, and white pine.

Fun walk, a little steep at times. Really clear 360 degree views from the summit. 2mi
