This park on four main lakes, a site for canoeing, kayaking, and fishing, has a history of Ojibwe Native Americans, French fur traders called voyageurs, and a gold rush. Formed by glaciers, there are tall bluffs, rock gardens, islands and bays, and historic buildings.

The elevation gain is higher than 9 feet as you climb a staircase attached to a giant boulder/rock. Get a view of a small pond that I'm sure gets some wildlife if you're lucky.

An easy trail that leads to an okay view of the lake. The Blind Ash Bay Trail is better, but also the dock behind the visitor center has some better views.

Nice trail that gives you some good views of Kabetogama Lake. Saw some deer while on the way to the loop. Can also be accessed from the visitor center parking area.

The Blind Ash Trail is not listed on this site. The trail head starts near the Ash River Visitors Center and it's an approximate 3 mile combo out and back-loop trail. Easy to moderate and very pretty quiet. Any hiking enthusiast looking for a short term fix will enjoy this trail. It certainly deserves it's own identification on this site.

There are many great trails to choose from, most of which involve some canoeing and/or portaging. Most of the trails are fairly well maintained and isolated. You also have a decent chance of seeing some wildlife, especially birds.
