Pleasant well-marked day hiking in Chicopee Woods Natural Preserve. And well worth the $1 parking fee! (Collection box is in the parking lot.) First time I've hiked a trail where they even mark the nastiest roots for you haha. The All Trails directions take you right to the overflow parking lot to set off on the longer West Lake Trail loop, but there is also another parking lot on the far end of the trail right next to Chicopee Lake. Wouldn't make a difference if you set off to do the loop from there if you prefer. The lake is really pretty. It was worth the 35-minute drive up from Duluth, and I'll probably come back a couple times a year.
