The trees were beautiful. The walk was easy for the entire family and wound through interesting areas.

Always a favorite when in the area. Like a slice of heaven to see these massive trees. Great hiking, quiet, peaceful & a great place to decompress.

Beautiful place, especially in the fall. Quiet and the trails weren't bad at all. The large trees are scattered throughout the forest. Something you must do if you visit Copper Harbor.

Took our dogs for a walk amongst the 200 foot trees which are 500 years old during a very windy day. The paths are sparsely populated so it’s a great place to get away from it all and drink on the beauty.

We visited last week of September and hiked part of the Memorial Grove Trail. Many list this as an easy hilly hike and others point out the roots and rocks. I plead the latter. We’re 60 and 61, moderate shape and I do some weight lifting. The challenging part is you have to watch every step you take. Hills, and many many roots, rocks, pine needles and slippery mud parts. It is beautiful and we encountered zero bugs, which surprised me. My husband had his walking stick and I wished I’d had mine. I’d recommend this but be prepared with good tread shoes or hiking boots. There’s no cell service so if you fall, or twist an ankle, you’re gonna be there a while. The entrance part is mostly level and nice wooden bridges in places, but definitely NOT handicap accessible. Hope this helps. The forest itself is truly lovely! I managed one photo showing the roots and elevation but then my husband took my phone so I’d concentrate and not trip! 🤣
