We were fortunate to have sunny skies, a nice breeze and the mosquitoes were not bad at all. I'm sorry we did not start out earlier - would have been a great place to catch the sunrise. We enjoyed the interpretive first half and the rocky second half.

Be prepared for rocky trail and mosquitoes. Keep moving & take pictures where there is a breeze because when you stop they catch up. Great view from the point.

The beginning of this hike is in Rock Harbor. It's a nice easy trail with a few interpretive signs along the way. About a mile and a quarter out the interpretive sign says that you are now on your own to find your way to Scoville Point. I got a little nervous because the I didn't want to have start... More

I've read the reviews that Scoville is an easy hike from Rock Harbor. Actually, the hike starts out easy but becomes rocky. It is not by any means an easy hike. It is a moderate hike. Lovely, but for us slow hikers, it will take a while. Bring a snack and water.

Just that, a nice hike. Both of my 74 year old parents and my 9 year old son were able to make it a couple of hours.

We hiked as far as we could go on the Stoll Trail to Scoville Point. The Stoll trail is easy to moderate in difficulty. Unfortunately, rains flooded the last 0.2 miles of trail to ScovillePoint. Needed waders to get through. Even the Ranger Emma agreed.

Beautiful landscape, flowers and wildlife. We didn't see any moose, however, there was plenty of evidence that they were nearby!

Beautiful 4-5 mile hike to a scenic point. It was quite foggy while we were there, so the view was short but still a breathtaking experience.

My family and I loved our hike to Scoville Point on our backpacking trip in Isle Royale. On our last night in Isle Royale we stayed in Rock Harbor in order to catch the ferry to Copper Harbor the next day. We hike the 4 mile trail in the evening and it was absolutely beautiful! We didn't see moose on... More
