The "Lost 40" is a Point of Interest in the Chippewa National Forest. It is 40 acres that was surveyed as swampland in error in 1882, hence it was never purchased by loggers and thus has never seen the loggers saw. It's full of old growth red and white pine trees and other flora. Along the trail, there are many information stands that explain what it is your are looking at, as well as the history of the site. Very easy walking, beautiful tree's, quiet! Worth the drive and bring your camera.Show more
