A point-to-point trail between Malone Bay and Ishpeming Point. This 7-mile trail connects Malone Bay to the Greenstone Ridge Trail at Ishpeming Point. There are three steep climbs along the route, including the steepest climb of all—the trek to the peak of Ishpeming Point. Special attractions: Connector to the Greenstone Ridge Trail; wilderness forest. There are three steep climbs along the route, including the steepest climb of all—the trek to the peak of Ishpeming Point. The trail can be hiked from the junction with the Greenstone (north to south) or from the ferry dock at Malone Bay (south to north). From the Greenstone trailhead the hike is all downhill, but you have to rely on water transportation once you reach the end of the trail to get you to your next destination. The hike from south to north is more difficult but allows more flexibility in planning connecting hikes.
