This is a wonderful scenic hike out to Scoville Point on the Stoll Trail. It is a moderate difficulty only because of all the uneven boulders and tree roots that try to trip you while you are distracted by the scenery. No big hills. Some board walks where you have to balance on a 12" wide board over a wetland... More

I say "easy" because if you have bad ankles or knees you should be careful on this hike, Long portions are packed large stones so injuries to those with susceptible lower extremities might be an issue. My wife was fighting plantar fasciitis and had to quit before reaching the point.

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

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!!!
