autmn fall colors at wolf rock trail near gooseberry falls state park

 

Wolf Rock

mile 36.8

 

Length: 9.4 miles one-way to Gooseberry Falls State Park
Difficulty: moderate [climb 472' (217' to Wolf Rock), descend 689']
 
Short, steep and so worth it, this trail ascends out of the parking lot. After a series of switchbacks, the trail parallels the ridge and rewards you with a Lake Superior view. Continue on to Wolf Rock for amazing wide-open vistas of the lake. Continue on to Gooseberry Falls State Park, or turn around, enjoy the descent and head to your next short hike!
