It just has some incredible views. Make sure to bring your camera. The best scenery is all along the hike all the way out to the final point. It's an easy hike and you don't need any experience as a hiker to be able to accomplish this trek.

The hike to Scoville Point was the perfect walk near Rock Harbor Lodge. Closer to 5 miles than the advertised 4.2, it was a medium grade hike due to the rocks and roots but generally flat. Good for all ages and levels of ability, Terrific scenery and fairly private being so close to the lodge. If you only do one... More

The trail starts out as a moderate hike with roots and rocks in the the trail. There is some difficult rock-stepping at the end, for a beautiful view. Return on the Tobin Harbor trail is easier. We averaged 1 mile per hour.

Roughly a 4 mile hike from the lodge at Rock Harbor, Scoville Point is not to be missed if you make a trip to Isle Royale.

This isn't a very long hike but the view is well worth the effort. Trail can be rocky but it close to shore and there was a breeze.

The elevation change is very minimal, and the Stoll Path largely follows the shoreline to the point. It's about 2 miles from Rock Harbor and is easily reachable in a 3 hour round trip - at a leisurely pace. Bring some lunch and have a picnic at this very scenic spot.

This is a wonderful scenic hike out to Scoville Point on the Stoll Trail. It is a moderate difficulty only because of all the uneven boulders and tree roots that try to trip you while you are distracted by the scenery. No big hills. Some board walks where you have to balance on a 12" wide board over a wetland... More

I say "easy" because if you have bad ankles or knees you should be careful on this hike, Long portions are packed large stones so injuries to those with susceptible lower extremities might be an issue. My wife was fighting plantar fasciitis and had to quit before reaching the point.

This is a hike of a little over 4 miles round trip. It is rated as easy. I would say moderate. There are some rocky points. I would definitely recommend hiking boots. In theory you could do this hike even on just a day visit, but it would have been a close call. You would need to bring your lunch... More
