Superior Hiking Trail: Split Rock River Loop Professional Review and Guide

"This is one of the “premier day hike loops on the Superior Hiking Trail.” The walk up the rocky west side of the Split Rock River begins with the rivers estuary and, after crossing Strand Creek and its wonderful grotto, there are the rivers gorges, falls, rapids, and cliffs.

These are mostly formed from the Split Rock Rhyolite with the two most impressive rock features being the Two Towers and the Beehive. After crossing the bridge over the river, the descending trail affords some beautiful views up the river valley, as well as spectacular views of the back of the Beehive and the Two Towers."

Great section of the Superior Hiking Trail. Very well marked, and nice clean trail. Beautiful scenery up and back down the Split Rock river along with some great views of Lake Superior.
