Chapel Loop Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Take even the briefest of glances at this route’s attractions, and the reasons for its reputation are obvious. This hike begins in a quiet forest and continues to a notable waterfall. Next it arrives on the shores of Earth’s largest freshwater lake, but not just in any old spot. For 5 eye-catching miles, the path follows what may well be the U.P.’s most spectacular shoreline.
A parade of convoluted cliffs, natural arches, and rushing streams line the trail, which hugs the rim of the escarpment between Chapel Beach and the Mosquito River. Grand Island’s sharp northern prow marks the western horizon, while the eastern shore arcs to far-off Au Sable Point."
