  • Terrain rough with ups and downs; tree roots and rocks, but scenery well worth it once arriving. Hiked just 3 miles total this time but would love to go further next time.  more »
  • This was a lovely trail to spend the afternoon on. The fall colors made it even more beautiful. There are different hiking options in this trail system.  more »

  • A beautiful hiking trail, feels like you're in the BWCA, a fun trail run as well, with great swimming spots and overlooks.
  • Absolutely wonderful trail. make sure to bring some hiking boots because there's been a few areas on the Dry Lake Trail, the one that connects to Bass Lake. Has some muddy area's. Absolutely breathtaking views! I definitely recommend it to anyone touring Ely. If you are looking for a wonderful Trail to hike. This is the spot, the locals love it too.
  • Great walking trails, at least 4-5 hours od hiking to do here + a small waterfall to dip in
  • It was confusing to find the correct tail from the falls back to the parking lot. The falls were awesome and the hike was pleasant.
  • great hiking area with scenic views and good trail markings

Where to stay in Ely

Most of the accommodations in Ely cluster along Sheridan Street. The important thoroughfare is also home to cafes, outdoor equipment stores, supermarkets, and restaurants, so a stay there puts you right in the thick of things. Choose between the various motels and inns located along this stretch, with some offering standalone bungalow lodgings, others onsite spas, and all of them an enviable position in the heart of town. Pioneer Road swings out of town and follows the edge of the lake, offering access to larger, more upscale resorts.
