Mosiquitos are very bad right now even after bug spray lol the dog loved the muddy spots so she’s happy... inside of my Jeep not so much lol Easy quick hike otherwise, oh no outhouse so make sure to plan ahead if you have kiddos with you!

Great hike with a pup today. The mosquitos were the same size as him, bring spray. Parts were pretty muddy after the storms last night, but overall the trail was in great shape

Easy, pretty trail around the lake. We took a little detour down another trail to make it a bit longer. Perfect quick hike with kids.

Nice trail on the easier side outside of the down trees and a few wet areas, but not surprised with the recent rain and storms. All things considered, decent walk in the woods.

This is a nice area and not too hard to hike BUT, we hiked it in March 2019. Last year a Tornado came through this area and this trail is a disaster area. Its very very hard to follow the tiny triangles on trees and with SO many huge trees down right across the trail it was non stop working around them, then almost being lost. Finally we lost the trail all together and had to turn back. No markers anyplace. While driving through the campgrounds( Leverance lake) we saw markers literally everywhere in every direction. The map on the sign was totally useless. Didnt match anything we saw. This site does NOT show the seemingly endless detours and routes all over this area. So many splits.. which way to go? Nothing mapped. Sign on post useless. Spent the day mostly lost wandering around aimlessly backtracking, or jumping over or around a million downed huge trees. This COULD be a fabulous trail to hike if they cleaned up the mess from the Tornado AND seriously marked it and mapped it so someone could actually know where they were at and where they were going !!! The map on this site is useless. The one for Leverance lake is much closer but still lacking. Beautiful area though. Such a shame.

There is not a place to park. It is a seasonal road. If you have 4-wheel drive and can pull off, you will be fine.

Very easy. Good signage, maps at beginning and middle of trail.

Many trees downed across path after August windstorms 9 weeks ago... DNR busy with fishers and hunters, no budget. Take lots of bug spray even when dry.

1.1 miles round trip. This is a pretty easy family trail. When you're in the parking lot, take the trail to your left, the right trail is the North Country Trail. The lake isn't large. There's 3 walk in camp sites. A nice trail.

This is a awesome kayak or canoe route. Rainbow rapids can be a bit challenging for a beginner. Can get rough and theres usually a lot of logs and rocks right under the water or in the way to dodge. But gorgeous and a lot of fun! We do this one all the time. NOTE !! Ivans no longer rents Canoes !!!!!!

Nice, secluded trail with several solid camp sites surrounding Lost Lake. Not a terribly long or difficult hike - good for a day trip or one-nighter.

This makes for a great quick hike with the kids, with just enough geography to keep it interesting. There are some beautiful little glens on the far west end of the loop.
