Minong Ridge Trail-2-Isle Royale

What's new:

Added a new map with updates


The Minong Ridge Trail is a 29-mile route along the north shore of Isle Royale National Park. The trail is not only the park's most challenging hike but arguably the hardest backpacking trek in Michigan. Part of the challenge is the amount of time needed to hike it. The trail itself is a three to four-day walk from McCargoe Cove Campground to Windigo. But most backpackers also need another two days to reach McCargoe Cove from Rock Harbor. The second map in the Minong Ridge Trail series covers the 9.6-mile stretch from the junction with Hatchet Lake Trail to the south end of Lake Desor. From Todd Harbor to the North Lake DeSor Campground is a 12-mile-plus hike that includes the most challenging segment of the trail. For this reason, most backpackers take two days to hike it, spending the night at Little Todd Campground. Produced by, this map includes: --10-foot contour lines --All adjoining trails and campgrounds --Amenity icons --Mileage flags marking the Minong Ridge Trail For photos and complete trip information for the Minong Ridge Trail or Isle Royale National Park go to the website at
