    Brian Anderson completed William Munger State Trail

    A converted rail-trail that is about as nice of a bike trail as I’ve ever seen. The trestle crossings are especially neat. Trail conditions and updates can be found on the State of Minnesota DNR page.

    I’ve paddled this section many times and have experienced it both as a small child and as a skilled adult canoeist. Very pretty yet also quite popular due to the long standing canoe rental. This section is generally very slow and is intended more as a scenic trip. The lower section has ledges and class 3 and 4 rapids (mild interpretations of which except during the springtime melt) and are for more experienced paddlers.

    It’s necessary to pack all of your water, which makes the initial ascent quite challenging. Nice trail once you’re on top of the mountain. In spring or fall, I’d recommend planning for a variety of temperatures due to the elevation differences. Climbing the mountain was boiling hot, however when camping at Tejas that night, our gallon water bottles froze solid.

    Excellent trail and one that I found surprisingly challenging. Be prepared for plenty of bugs and rugged terrain. Beautiful and secluded.

    This was one of my favorite hikes while living in California. With that said, the crowds had clearly taken a toll, so I'm actually hoping the closure means it will be relatively inaccessible for a considerable time. This place needs time to heal.

    A rare gem where it is possible to backpack along the Pacific Coast without any sign of civilization. To reiterate what others have said you want to understand the tide and protect your food from bears. Its a lot of loose rocks more than packed sand, so the miles here will take a lot more out of you than they would in other places. Sneakers might actually be a better choice than hiking boots for this trail.

    They are incredibly popular and do not always attract the most appealing people. That said it is a pleasant little walk with neat spring fed tubs at the destination. I always preferred hiking in when the area is closed due to snow. Otherwise even in the middle of the night, it could be pretty crowded.

    Neat hike and destination! Be aware that there are rattlesnakes in the tall grass along the river. I almost stepped directly on one while wearing sandals, which were preferred over boots due to the numerous river fords. There is no cell service and it's a long hike back to the car and then to civilization, so it would be a bad place to get bit.

    The hike to tunnel falls was one of my favorites when I lived in Portland. Granted, it was always extremely crowded, but stunningly beautiful. It’s a shame that it was destroyed by careless people playing with fire.

    The terrain is actually pretty flat, so the difficulty rating is more based on the distance than the actual trail. It rained for the entire week we were there which made for a challenge. Definitely come prepared for cold and rain. Much of the trail is surrounded by trees, so don't expect epic scenery for the entire hike. Moose are a common sight.
