Isle Royale NP: Stoll Trail
Buy the $.99 downloadable map!(This map is not geo-referenced)
The trails in and around Rock Harbor and the eastern end of the park offer the most variety of any on Isle Royale. For an afternoon of craggy coastline and pounding Lake Superior surf, the Albert Stoll Memorial Trail travels east of the lodge to the end of Scoville Point.
This easy loop trail begins at Rock Harbor Lodge and travels 2.0 miles east to rugged Scoville Point. The trail winds back and forth between the forest and the shoreline, where craggy bluffs and sharp cliffs are testimony to Lake Superior's power and persistent erosion.
The point is named after an 1840’s copper prospector and is a mix of craggy rock shoreline, juniper brushes and a few scraggily pines. It’s a beautiful spot where you can sit on the rock bluffs, soak in the sun and watch the boaters and kayakers pass through on their way to Rock Harbor.
