Starting and ending at Rock Harbor, hiked the eastern side of the island. In mid-Sept, there's no bugs, very few people. So beautiful. If you get the chance-GO!!
Ordinarily I don't sign logs unless they are summits, but there is not page for Mt. Ojibway, and I feel the summit deserves mention, so here I am.
Hiked Windigo to Rock Harbor:
North Desor - Little Todd - McCargoe Cove - Daisy Farm - 3 Mile - Rock Harbor
The reason for the three close stops bunched together at the end is that I skipped a scheduled night (Todd Harbor) thinking I could catch the ferry back a day early. Sadly, the Voyageur II does not depart on Saturdays. Ah, well. It was a privilege to be marooned.
It's a beautiful NP, a beautiful island. Mt. Ojibway was a definite highlight of my week there.
See my Isle Royale Album for a true vintage look of the times!
Spent 8 days on the island - hiked from Rock Harbor to Windigo via the Greenstone, Minong, and connecting trails. Loved it! Trip report here!
The couple times I've been on the Island we brought a canoe and portaged across from McCargo Cove to Malone bay. Do to the logistics of getting a canoe to the island, the route is very remote with most of the camp sites being canoe in only.
We always go in August when the bugs are low. Beautiful place.
