Isle Royale National Park

Isle Royale National Park in Michigan is a true wilderness retreat in mighty Lake Superior. Isle Royale National Park is accessible only via a boat or a floatplane. There are well over160 miles of National Park hiking trails on the scenic sliver of swamps, bogs, lakes and woodlands that cover this island, which is more than 40 miles long.

Michigan wildlife lovers will be pleased to know that there is a thriving moose population on Isle Royale and a healthy pack of wolves in residence to control the population.

By autumn, cold temperatures return quickly, but this is also the peak color season. From Mid-September to early October the stands of maple turn this wild island fiery red, providing some of the most gorgeous Michigan hiking surroundings visitors could hope for.
