Hike to Lookout Louise

2 Miles Round Trip - Out-and-Back Trail

Lookout Louise Boat Launch - Search Nearby - Added by Alex Harrison

Immerse yourself in Isle Royale's unique setting and enjoy views of Canada, smaller islands, and crystal clear lakes that sculpt this lesser known national park.

Starting at the Tobin Harbor day use dock kayak/canoe northeast or out of the inlet towards Lake Superior. Stay on the left side of the inlet for roughly a mile. You will pass several small chains of islands so stay to the left. You will come upon another day use dock and you will want to get out of your boat there. 

The trail to Lookout Louise starts at the dock and passes nearby Hidden Lake. You can continue up and enjoy the sights along the way. There are wild blueberries that you might find along the way which can be a tasty snack for the hike. The trail will wind uphill for roughly a mile and then you will have clear and amazing views of Isle Royale's stunning landscape.

When you have taken in the incredible views, make your way back down the same way to the boat dock and head back to Tobin Harbor.
