A scenic three- or four-day loop departing from Windigo. This 24-mile loop is a mildly rugged trail that traces the southwestern corner of the park, an area with few tough stretches and plenty of scenery. Most of the trek is along fairly level trails, but hikers should prepare for two tough sections over Greenstone and Feldmann ridges, with the latter being the toughest. Special attractions: Moose, high ridges, scenery, Feldmann Lake, Siskiwit Bay, Island Mine. Connects to the Greenstone Ridge Trail.

This was our first remote trip , and was well worth it . We consider ourselves moderate outdoorsmen and the trip tested us mildly . The landscape was beautiful and let me tell ya if youve never had the chance to see a 1000lb moose come thru your camp ....wow what a sight. The fishing was ok at best . The water was to chopy on inner lake and superior. Would recomend to hike this trail if you you enjoy wild life and natural beauty with a test of physical indurance.
