After hiking a few of the more challenging trails in the porkies this one was a nice break. The trail is quite well maintained with planks over some of the more muddy sections. At about mile 2 you come to a large ravine overlooking some small falls/rapids, and a bench to perfect for a break. The trail connects to the Lake superior trail which makes it a possible starting point to some backpackers. The trail is steep at times but not to strenuous. A nice little hike through the Forest.
