This is the first of a six-map series covering the Greenstone Ridge Trail in Isle Royale National Park. The Greenstone Ridge, the backbone to Isle Royale National Park, is also responsible for Michigan’s best long distance hike; the Greenstone Ridge Trail. The Greenstone is technically a 42.2-mile trail that extends from Lookout Louise near the east end of Isle Royale to Windigo on the west end although most backpackers pick it up at Mount Franklin or even Mount Ojibway. Although the trail is rated moderate and is easy to follow, there are eight high points that exceed 1,300 feet and often knee-bending climbs between them. Experienced hikers in good shape can cover the 40-plus miles in 3 days, but the Greenstone can also be a good trail for beginners if they come with light packs and have 4 or 5 days to walk it. Map 1 of the Greenstone Ridge Trail Series from MichiganTrailMaps.com covers the 5.1 miles from Lookout Louise to Mount Franklin. It also includes Rock Harbor Trail and Mount Franklin Trail, the most popular route to access the Greenstone Ridge, along with: --10-foot contour lines --All adjoining trails and campgrounds --Amenities and scenic view icons --Mileage flags marking the Greenstone Ridge Trail.
