Gitchi Gami State Trail: Gooseberry Falls to Split Rock Lighthouse to Beaver Bay

mile 39.5
Highlights:  Silver Creek Tunnel with wide open lake views; the bridge over the Split Rock River mouth, and Split Rock Lighthouse Amenities: Visitor centers at Gooseberry Falls & Split Rock Lighthouse State Parks and Lighthouse, restaurants, shops and convenience items in Beaver Bay Length: 13.1 miles one way Difficulty: easy & accessible to most difficult due to length

 

While it doesn’t meet the definition of a hike, the Gitchi-Gami State Trail is ideal for walking with strollers, walkers, wheelchairs, or those looking for a paved surface. The bonus in the summer is the cool breezes right off the lake; the downside is it can be downright cold if the wind is off the lake. The longest completed section is the 13.1-mile segment between Gooseberry Falls State Park northeast to the town of Beaver Bay.
