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

The Scoville Point Trail is easy to access as it starts next to the lodge. The views are great and the hike is pretty easy. It was on this trail that my husband and I saw our moose. She was in a boggy area away from the trail at first, but ended up walking up about 10 feet from the... More
