HikingGreat!

I gave this trail just 3 stars because of how poorly the trails are marked. The hike itself is pretty and the view is fantastic, especially in the Autumn. But we had no idea where we were going, even with All Trails and the map provided at the trailhead. There are many, many unmarked trails and very few signs en route. It was frustrating! On the plus side, I will say that we were walking for part of the time on a shared bike and hike trail and that seemed better for hiking than most bike trails are.

The first half was lovely but the route I took brought me through a swamp and bog which was a huge mistake. Be warned!

Good trail! Lots of roots. The last 0.4 miles or so was very steep and the lookout was good, but not great (4/5).

Very nice long trail system. Very technical once you get a little deeper in the woods. Lots of roots and rocks. Well marked and easy to follow. I was able to put in 10 miles in a long loop. Highly recommend.

It needs to be maintained more, but it’s an awesome place to escape!

Had a great hike here with my dog on Saturday. The weather was perfect for a fall hike. Many different trails so things can get a little confusing. The harder of the trails are very rocky and severely overgrown but that just adds to the challenge. The fall foliage was just starting so the scenery was spectacular. I will do this one again.

The mountain bike trails of this are super fun to be on but the hiking portions are poorly maintained with a lot of high weeds and trees down making it very difficult to navigate if trying to move briskly

might have been all the rain we have gotten. it’s pretty overgrown. But it’s a good trail, lots of berries to snack on, a few places for pictures. lots of other trails that aren’t on the apps map. overall pretty easy trail.

Hiking

Loop hike along the Laurentian Divide, the east-west divide between Lake Superior and Hudson Bay. There is a maze of trails involving the Fitness Trail near the trailhead; follow the blue diamonds to get out of the Fitness Trail area and onto the "real" hiking trails. Trail goes mostly through forest with a few open rock outcrops. The national forest's literature mentions overlooks, but I never came to anything I would call an overlook, at least not during the summer. Watch out for rocks hiding among tall grass on the southern part of the loop: I sprained my ankle when I stepped on the side of such a rock.

You'll find any easy "fitness trail" in the beginning, which is a nice wide trail to stretch your legs if you are traveling and stop at this rest stop. Many of the obstacles for the fitness part need to be redone as they are falling apart, though. If you continue on past the first Loop, there are many different trails. Some of them go straight up, and many various levels of difficulty are found here. We spend a lot of time here as it's only 5 minutes from our house, but you can feel like you're in the middle of nowhere.

First to Review

Great trails all year-round. Many different loops for xc-skiing, hiking, running or walking. There is a small fitness loop with equipment for workout activities then larger loops for hiking and skiing. A few hidden spots for rock climbing are used by local groups and 7+ miles of single track bike trail has been added in the recent years by a few hardworking people and trail crews. Terrain is easy to moderate for hiking and skiing with trails all marked with difficulty. There is also a small shelter located at the far east-end of the long loop.
