Description

This is a straight, unassuming trail that gets runners from the Little Carp River across the woods to the shores of the Great Lake Superior. Astounding views are found on the shores of the windswept Lake as well as gorgeous camping options.

Along the way, you'll find yourself in what is one of the greatest swaths of wilderness the Upper Midwest has to offer. The woods, water, and wildlife found here are worthy of the work required to access it.

Plenty of quality camping, backcountry lakes, fishing, bird and wildlife options abound as you make your way along quality trail tread past some of the finest scenery the Midwest has to offer.

Flora & Fauna

Flora and fauna in the Porkies are quite abundant. One may witness black bear, fisher, red squirrel, varying hare, red fox, gray wolf, coyote, bobcat, porcupine, striped skunk, and on occasion, moose. In addition, the spring display of wildflowers in May is spectacular and the woodland wildflowers in summer continue this excellence. Coral-root orchids, rattlesnake plantain orchids, and many others. Ferns, clubmosses, lichens, and mosses are also in abundance.
