Description

A very short trail to a great spot to fish, swim, or take in great views of the vast Lake Superior and the gorge of Baptism River inland. There are a few flights of stairs and gentle grades, but overall a very brief and easy run. About halfway, there is an overlook with views of the river mouth from a higher vantage.
