Isle Royale NP: Hatchet Lake Trail
From the Greenstone Ridge Hatchet Lake Trail descends sharply to its namesake lake, reaching it in 0.3 miles and the campground in a half mile. From the junction to the campground the trail heads east and then north for a relatively moderate hike until it climbs the Minong Ridge at its north end.
From here you can hike to either Todd Harbor (1.4 miles) or Little Todd Harbor (5.3 miles) for the night. Before embarking for Little Todd Harbor, keep in mind that the Minong Ridge is a rugged trail where there is little water available.
