The Thordarson Loop Trail Will Show You A Completely New Side Of Wisconsin

A wild uninhabited Wisconsin island is home to a trail that’s like no other. The Thordarson Loop Trail rings Rock Island, an island in Lake Michigan that’s an adventure just to reach – it takes two ferry rides to get to this place, which is a Wisconsin State Park. It’s worth the effort. Rock Island is home to rugged woodland trails, rocky beaches, beautiful stone structures, and an old lighthouse. there are no cars or bikes allowed on the Island, but the Thordarson Loop Trail will take you to all of the island’s best sights.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

If you’re pressed on time, you can make the loop shorter by cutting across the island on the Havamal Trail. On the other hand, if you want an extended island hiking adventure, there are campsites on the south side of the island. Looking for more spectacular Wisconsin hiking trails?
