“Great place to hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Great trails and beautiful trees. trails are for more than beginner hikers and can be a little treacherous. Definately worth the trip.

“walk on the mountain”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

while the trees were huge including some large oaks we found some parts of the trail are difficult to manage becuase of roots on the trail ,steep parts can become slippery.the trees are neat to see their hieght and girth are incredable.

“Tough to find - and so what?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Lots and lots of trees, tall pines. but overstated. So much logging or something going on it was disconcerting. The Hartwick Pines in the Gaylord area is a much superior forest visit. Wouldn't spend time trying to get there from downtown Copper Harbor. Don't see the attraction.

“great short hikes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

It is a nice place with two hike trails. It is not possible to ride a bike there due to the nature of trails (rocks and roots) but it is perfect for a nice, quiet hike. Another activity for a sunny day in Copper Harbor.

“Quiet hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

I am not a hiker, and I am not athletically inclined. I am the epitome of sedentary. I know nothing about trees. I challenged myself to this hike through the woods, and it was absolutely beautiful. I saw only two small groups of people out there.
