West Huginnin Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"A side loop from the Minong Ridge Trail to a picturesque shoreline campground. This 6.5-mile loop is used as a warm up by hikers preparing for the rugged Minong Ridge Trail—the picturesque campground in Huginnin Cove is an easy 3-hour hike from the Windigo ferry, and makes a good first-night stopping place. The lowlands and swamps along this loop also provide hikers with an excellent opportunity to see moose and other wildlife. Special attractions: Moose, wildlife, scenery.
