An easy, short walk with wonderful overlooks from Leveaux Mountain. There are also the maple forest on the mountain and the Star Wars Porphyry, the rock the mountain is composed of. The loop trail ascends steeply via switchbacks through a maple-birch forest over a dark-colored, igneous intrusive rock that contains from 5-15% large plagioclase feldspar crystals. Waypoint 2 is at the junction of the loop trail and a short spur trail to an overlook above a steep cliff. There are nice views from here of what Judy refers to as the “interior”–the vast green forests inland of Lake Superior.” A large talus deposit occurs at the base of the cliff.
