Hike Chapel Basin Area

Several hikes are available in this area, depending on what trails you take and how long you wish to walk. The 3.0 mile trail from the Chapel parking lot to Chapel falls runs along an old roadbed. Sixty foot high Chapel Falls is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the park. If you continue on this trail for 1.8 miles (one way) you will see Chapel Rock. If you begin at the Chapel parking lot and walk the north/west side of Chapel Lake, Chapel Beach is a 6.1 mile round trip. The longer 9 mile Chapel loop begins at the parking lot, passes Chapel Falls, Chapel Rock, and continues along the Pictured Rocks Cliffs to Mosquito River. The Mosquito Falls Trail connects with this trail, adding one mile to the hike. Consult a park map before you hike in this area as there are several hiking options.

Hiking Tips

No matter what length, any hike is more fun if you are properly prepared. Always wear sturdy shoes. If you plan to be out an extended time, carry a snack and water, and let someone know where you are going and your expected time of return. Carry a map and compass and know how to use them. Lake Superior modifies local weather - be prepared for cool conditions and rain.

Chapel Falls

Backcountry permits are required only if you plan to camp overnight in the backcountry. Please use toilets where provided, otherwise, bury waste 4-6 inches deep and cover with mineral soil.
