The Western 4mi. From Turtle Lake Rd to Co J. It's all down hill! kinda. Gorgeous for the 1 mile along the North Fork of Prairie River, with a bench by the bubbling Natural Spring.

The 4.2mi Eastern end of the segment was hilly from Co B. 27* at our 9am start left the snow frozen to walk atop. Beautiful around Bear Lake from above, lake level around Chain Lake, wow! the Camp site sits on a little Peninsula (pic) with logs to sit on. To wider trail to First Lake Rd.

Challenging with 6-8-inches of snow. Light foot traffic along path. Did not complete to west terminus. Stopped at Picnic Point Campground.

it was a challenging trail lots of elevation changes. there was logging going on and a lot of trees have been taken down. beautiful water on the walk and nice benches to sit down.... if you sit down while you're out hiking lol!

Hiking

Frozen mud no & snow cover made this easier. We hiked the whole 11.5 miles of the Mondeaux IAT segment in 5hrs. Maybe poor reception in the NF is why the App stopped recording the entire hike.

little different route then this entry but this trail is definitely over criticized, beautiful 70° today, no bucks, slightly muddy and just the right amount of challenge for me.

HikingGreat!

BEAUTIFUL trail with a diversity of sights and paths. Very clearly marked. We went in mid-October and it was like a fall wonderland. Perfect weather and no bugs. We did the whole loop, but there are several options for shorter hikes in case you don’t have 3.5 hours. There are also a couple picnic tables on the trail if you bring a packed lunch. One tip: Don’t try to plug the coordinates in your GPS to find the start of the trail — just load the location into the map from thIs application. Otherwise, it will be tricky to find.

Hiking

8.5 mile relatively flat trail that has some two track but is mostly single track. Trail passes close to a couple lakes so your dog, which must be kept on leash, has access to water. Beautiful hike in fall. XC skiing in winter. Signs at trailhead are misleading; this trail is not open to biking. Horses are also not allowed. There are several options for shorter hikes and the trail is very well marked.

Heavily wooded. Path is covered with leaves but trail is well marked with yellow arrows/marks.

Great hike! was definitely a fun challenge for me. leaves are just starting to change colors and it was a beautiful day. would recommend boots and pants because there is quite a bit of grass/mud you will be walking near or in depending on conditions.

nice trail through interesting topography, decent elevation changes, and some pretty country. can't wait to home more of it in the fall when the leaves change. join the ice age trail group to help keep this gem

BackpackingMuddy

Backpacked this trail and a portion of the IAT from 10 Aug 2020 to 12 Aug 2020. I parked at the trailhead for the IAT at CTH E. Because of the late start I had, I backpacked the Jerry Lake segment of the IAT to the West to the campsite located at the Western intersection of the IAT and the Chippewa Lobe Loop. Spent the night and on the next morning did the entire Chippewa Lobe Loop. This probably can be done in one day, but I wanted to backpack. The campsite at the South end of the Chippewa Lobe Loop is really nice with an excellent lake view. The one con I can say for the trail is that I think they routed the trail through every bog there was. Glad I did not do this in the Spring.

Great hike but with all the logging they have been doing the last couple of years it’s not a scene as it used to be. Be prepared for bugs!! I think I have ate 50+ mosquito bites.
