Backpack Rock Harbor to Lane Cove

7 Miles Round Trip - 500 ft gain - Point-to-Point Trail

Rock Harbor - Search Nearby - Added by James Brady

This hike will take you to one of the most scenic and peaceful campsites in the entire park.

If coming from Michigan, take the ferry to Isle Royale from Copper Harbor. After a three-hour journey you will arrive at the park via the dock in Rock Harbor around lunchtime. After registering at the park office you can set off on a great 7-mile hike to Lane Cove, which is well marked. This hike is a great exposure to the island, taking backpackers along the shoreline of Tobin Harbor, through thick forests, and over the Greenstone Ridge that runs the length of the island. You will likely reach your campsite on beautiful Lane Cove late in the afternoon. You will be able to take advantage of the solitude and pitch your tent mere feet from Lake Superior. As you relax at camp you will have the perfect vantage point to take in an absolutely breathtaking sunset over the lake.
