I arrived about an hour before sunset on 9/26. The trail was in good condition, the trailhead was easy to find and there were several nice views of the lake at the halfway point.

HikingGreat!

Well marked trail with forest floor carpet of pine needles. The outlook over Lake Kabetogama to Voyageurs is beautiful especially with Fall colors!

BackpackingGreat!

Did this hike 3 times now. The hike can be rough if carrying a good size camping pack, but the scenery is always worth it. check out Renae Taylor's full recorded trek from Kabetogama to Rainy Lake and back.

The trail is at least a mile longer than noted. There was a good view at the beginning and the end; a lot of branches and rocks along the trail and variable terrain. Very enjoyable in fall but we did see a lot of people.

Easy lollipop loop that is one of the few hiking trails in Voyageurs, and the only one we found within the park near the Rainy Lake visitor center. Because of covid no water taxis were running to the rest of the park, so we did this and then a trail outside the park. Some nice views in fall.

Road bikingGreat!

Aug 2019 eastern-northern MN, Canada (Ontario, Manitoba) trip. Day 5 Mine #40 corrected # 41 (White Sands of NM were added officially in 2019 I was there already) National Park out of 62 to visit in over two decades (Main Goal of trip). No fees this is very rare for National Park. Few hours ago also went to main Kabetogama Visitor Center and hiked nearby Echo Bay Trail. Mosquitoes were horrible!! Did only short part of trail at Rainy Lake Visitor Center. I was on bike trail leading to MN-11. Grounds, garden and Rainy Lake is very nice here including small marina (photos 12-14).

Beautiful remote hike. We got water-taxied to the dock in Lost Bay near Agnes Lake. Hiked up the right side of the trail system to Agnes Lake then to Cruiser Lake (3.4 miles to marker- closer to 4 miles to the lake side). Then on the way back, instead of going the last 0.8 mile back past Agnes Lake, we went right and did an extra 1.5 miles to Ek Lake, then 0.6 mile back to the dock.

We combined the Kabetogama Overlook Trail and the Blind Ash Bay Trail. Made the hikes more fun. Mostly moss & trees but there were some areas with nice views.

Nice easy trail. Roots and rocks weren’t bad with the light elevation gain. Nice forest to walk through and viewpoint at end. No bugs today!

There really aren’t many trails in Voyaguers... and compared to any section of Kab Ash, at least this one has a view at the end. The trail itself is on an old decommissioned road (the trace is wrong that it parallels a road). The view at the end is nice though. If you can do a hike that is longer and a little tougher do Blind Ash. If you are limited, this is a nice alternative. My 70+ year old parents joined me on this one...

This was a nice little hike in the woods. The trail surface is what was difficult with many roots and rocks to trip you up if you’re not paying attention. Definitely a trail not to be rushed on. Just take your time and take it all in! There are a couple beautiful vistas as well as being heavily wooded throughout.

HikingGreat!

This was a nice trail but nothing particularly special. You can see Rainy Lake at the overlook but it's not very high up so you can't see much. Minimal elevation, no people, lots of bugs. You really have to get out on the lake to experience the park.

Trails takes you to a nice lookout. Trail was overgrown at some spots and we left with a few ticks. Although not the most challenging trail, there are plenty of rocks and roots to scramble over.

We hiked the southern end of the Cruiser Lake trail system from Eks Bay to Quarter Line Lake and Eks Lake. The interior lakes were stunning and we didn’t see anyone else out on the trail. Saw several ruffed grouses. There were a lot of ticks (this was in May), but not many mosquitos or other bugs.

Enjoyable lollipop loop. Once you get to the loop portion there are some nice views to enjoy, a high up vista and access down to the water. Very buggy today. Saw a garter snake and heard a lot of wood thrushes. Follow my instagram for more adventures @julie_journeys

Did this trail in winter time. Was very easy with a couple cool views. Worth the 30 minutes.
