This is a hike of a little over 4 miles round trip. It is rated as easy. I would say moderate. There are some rocky points. I would definitely recommend hiking boots. In theory you could do this hike even on just a day visit, but it would have been a close call. You would need to bring your lunch... More

Scoville Point is 2 miles from Rock Harbor Lodge. It is an easy hike to the point. I ended up hiking out to the point everyday. I saw a red fox on one hike, a moose cow with calf on another, and a freighter in the distance on another.

I have seen this hike on lists of the best 100 miles in the National Park Service System. Beautiful views of Lake Superior

Great hike. Difficultly rate is moderate to slightly difficult depending on your physical abilities. Definitely not for someone with any leg/knee issue but it's fairly flat. It is how ever on uneven terrain. It's about 4.5 round trip. It's a linear trail. The tip of the point is a great place for a snack or lunch or just taking a... More

Well worth the short walk to the point. It is very scenic and not to difficult for the less mobile. Great views

2 mile(1 way) hike, some over rough terrain. You will be rewarded with a Superior view at the end. Possibility of seeing moose.

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.
