Wonderful spot for catching/photographing the sunrise.

Beautiful trail - fun to hike in the fall. Hidden Falls is a good highlight!

Worth the stop for sure! Beautiful views -- a great place to photograph.

Great place for sunrise - often pretty crowded.

Very quick stop that is well worth it. Short hike with an amazing view.

The Apostle Islands National Lakeshore is one of my all-time favorite places. It's been a number of years since I camped on Stockton with my family, but it was an amazing experience! We spent a lot of time swimming around and exploring Julian Bay. Would definitely recommend this to anyone!

Absolutely one of my favorite stops every time I visit the north shore. Breathtaking views of the Lake, cliffs, and Shovel Point.

When I did this hike with my Dad, we rented neoprene shoes/socks from a local outfitter - which was a great idea, however, one of the two must not have been fitting properly for either of us. After our week long trip in Utah we had several bruised toenails since there is a lot of downward hiking and scrambling involved with this hike. I think that's the one thing that made it difficult for us - our feet were killing us on the way back (from our feet being jammed into the end of the shoes) and we had spent so long photographing that we just barely made it out before sunset (and we did get an early start!). The exploration during the hike and around the Subway was well worth it, but we would have wished we'd had better fitting shoes and definitely more water!

One of my favorite places - the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. I agree, definitely get there early -- or you won't feel as though you're exploring alone. The amount of visitors has skyrocketed the past two years the caves have been open. Worth the drive every time!
