Isle Royale NP: Greenstone Ridge Trail-Map 6
Heading west the Greenstone Ridge Trail departs from the junction to South Lake Desor Campground and immediately starts climbing its namesake ridge. Within 1.5 miles from the junction, a side trail appears and leads you to a rocky clearing in the trees.
From this spot you can see the Canadian shoreline to the north and flat-topped Pie Island in Lake Superior. Enjoy the sun and the breaks in the foliage; these are the last significant views for the remainder of the trail. Most disappointing to backpackers is there are no views from Mount Desor (1394 feet), the highest point on the Island, are Sugar Mountain further west on the trail.
