Not a whole lot of people, very pretty, got some nice fall color pictures. Varied trails, some parts easy walking, a few parts less easy, but all good.

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

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.

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.

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.
