Isle Sites


On Isle Royale there are 165 miles of trails. Here time is measured in footsteps.

We trailed about 15 miles. It's all doable paths, but slow going because of uneven surfaces, lots of rock and roots. Along the way we could pick thimbleberry and blueberries.

We also canoed and rented a motor boat to get to some of the sites.

Here are some of the views we saw along the way and the exquisite plants.
