This 4.2 mile round trip hike is an absolute must for a visit to Snug Harbor and Rock Harbor. It is rocky and there are a lot of narrow boardwalks, but the payoff at the end with a view of Rock Harbor on one side and Tobin Harbor on the other is priceless. Plus we saw a moose - yeah!!!

This 4.2 mile loop trail was a great introduction to an absolutely beautiful park. We walked through forest and along the rocky shore. The wildflowers were a riot of color and every step seemed to introduce a new variety to the mix. There were interpretive signs along the way explaining the geology of the island. We were told that moose... More

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!
