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.

Nice short trail. Watch out for slippery rocks near the top.

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

Nice very easy walk to a decent overlook. Buggy today! Access to the Bling Ash Bay Trail. Very lightly trafficked. 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.

10/4/19 Did only the loop end (2 miles). Some great vista views and great Fall color.

Nobody else on this trail. It was wonderful. Gorgeous view at the end of the trail into Sullivan Bay. Took us 30-40min out and back.

Really pretty overlook of the lake. If you have 10 minutes for the trail, it's worth it.

Super easy short trail and really pretty view at the overlook plus a fun huge rock to climb up and look around.

Nice hike through some beautiful flora and relatively easy topography.

Great short hike into some nice easy topography. The hike gives way to some beautiful flora. The lake has been transformed by ambitious beavers building immense dams.

Really great hike in Ash River Center area. Bugs were low and everything marked well. Great overlook and spots that got your heart pumping!

Low trafficked trail. Overgrown in parts but very green, ferns were hip length and always worth an adventure in the woods. Bug spray is a must! Horseflies were relentless

slick rocks and roots a little challenging, couple of views quite nice though nothing caused me to break out the camera. Though it cant be helped... the BUGS made a solid 4 to a 3.

Great quick hike off the main roads headed into Voyageurs via Ash River Trail. Barely steep at best and provides an amazing view of the beaver pond.

Incredible number of beaver dams and beaver activity everywhere. In may it we had loads of ticks hiking the trail and camping - 40 between the 2 of us in one day, but it was well worth it!

a very easy hike out to a great place to sit and have a beer or snack. at the end there is a picnic table and a fire pit. not sure if this needs to be reserved in season or not, but this time of year there was no one around to say otherwise. saw tracks for moose, and what I Believe to be bobcat or linx maybe left in the few patches of snow. this was a spur of the moment trail tacked on after hiking to blind ash bay earlier in the afternoon.

a Lovely trail with a great overlook at the end of the loop. we encountered a few patches of snow left over but nothing was impassable. though I would make sure to have waterproof boots as the melting snow and thawing ground made the trail quite muddy with some standing water still in a few spots. again nothing impassable. the thawing lake was a great view and we saw no one the whole time. this was a great quick afternoon hike.

Incredibly easy trail that is wheel chair accessible. Went on a cloudy rainy day would have loved to seen the bay more!
