Family Friendly While the trail might be too long for very young children, older kids can definitely handle its moderate length and gentle grades.

Description

This trail follows parts of the shore of Lake Superior and offers scenic views along the way. There are a few historical places to visit, many of which are related to the old corundum mine located on the trail. Near the end, this trail intersects into the paved Gitchi-Gami State Trail, which offers countless connections to other trails in the area.

When getting ready to take a trip down this trail, expect a mixed-but-doable tread and plenty of opportunities to get down to the water's edge.
