We originally planned to hike the Ravine Trail but the leaves were so thick on the path we were having difficulty finding and staying on the trail. We were the only ones in the park, and I was a little afraid of getting lost so we finally turned around and went down the easier direct route. The colors in the upper elevation of the Ravine Trail were quite spectacular so I really hated to turn around but it was the smart thing to do! This was my last shot before turning around….autumn in all its glory!
Owned by the Red Cliff Band of the Lake Superior Chippewa, this amazing gem of a park on the Red Cliff Reservation is Frog Bay Tribal National Park. It is 180 acres of old growth primordial boreal forest with pristine Lake Superior shoreline and amazing views of the Apostle Islands. This property was only recently reacquired by the reservation and has thankfully never been logged. It is very rustic with very little signage, you won’t find this place easily. Only 2 miles of hiking trails are open to the public but it is definitely worth a visit.
Located on Wisconsin’s Bayfield Peninsula, the park is part of the Lake Superior Scenic Byway.
