Note – this hike replaces the Split Rock River Loop as the footbridge on that loop has been removed
The new loop includes a cobblestone beach on Lake Superior, some climbs and descents, hiking under the tree canopy, overlooks, and a portion of the trail that skirt Lake Superior. This 4.4 mile loop starts and ends at the Split Rock River Wayside.
Hike under Highway 61 towards Lake Superior, then follow the paved bike path for .2 mile before carefully crossing Highway 61. Take the Superior Hiking Trail spur to the main trail for views of the lighthouse and big lake. Where the path Ts, go north, then take the spur trail back down hill, across the Highway, along the bike path then left on to the Corundum Mine Trail which features several overlooks.
