From the rocky West Pike landing the trail climbs steeply to the extreme. As an added bonus, there was a spot where the canoe barely squeezed through a few trees. The trail briefly levels out at the BRT intersection before resuming the incredibly steep ascent. Only now there are also knobby boulders to contend with! The landing on Gogebic is a rocky, though welcome spot.
