Tobin Harbor Trail > Tobin Creek

Trail question for the seasoned IR hikers - - If we take the Tobin Harbor Trail from Rock Harbor Lodge SW towards Tobin Creek, is there any kind of trail to walk along Tobin Creek? TIA!!

Re: Where to stay?

Thanks for all of the responses, very helpful in deciding to keep our reservation at the cabin. Maybe we will be more seasoned after our first trip and try camping next time. Looking forward to getting there!

Re: Where to stay?

I was once sitting in the Greenstone Grill (in Rock Harbor) and watched a moose walk down the paved path in front of it, so you can see a moose anywhere . It's more about time of day and time of year. If you get up early (think sunrise) and check out swampy areas and dense undergrowth, you'll have ...

Re: Boat options from Grand Portage to Rock Harbor

Thanks IncaRoads and Ingo. I was wondering about a fishing boat or something other than the Voyageur out of Grand Portage - if anyone has had luck with that. A 6 hour boat ride is too long for me. Otherwise we will consider the seaplane or a ferry from Copper Harbor.

There are four of us coming from the Duluth MN area and are wondering if there are options other than the Voyageur II to get there. Are there boats available for round trip hire in Grand Portage? One ...
