This rugged coastline hike soundtracked by howling wolves and keening loons might be the best in the Midwest. Take everything there is to love about upper-Midwest hiking—serene forests, rocky bluffs, the soundtrack of howling wolves and lilting loons, and above all, those glorious lakes—turn it up to 11, and you have Isle Royale. The island’s charms are in full force on its northeastern tip, where the trail hugs the shoreline for constant lake views. It’s here, where dry land’s victory over the water’s countless incursions of bays, inlets, and waves never seems totally assured, that you’ll best appreciate the drama of this rugged refuge.
