A walk up the Mount Rose Trail provides opportunities to view the spectacular  scenary of Lake Superior.  When we're not looking at the view, we can see rock outcrops of Precambrian age; sedimentary rocks of the Rove Formation and diabase, an igneous rock of the Pigeon River dike complex.

The Mount Rose Trail is paved with stone steps.  We recommend you bring: sturdy footwear, a daypack, extra clothing, water bottle, sun hat, and bug protection.
