Beautiful fall colors. Some of the trail was also part of the North Country Trail.

Amazing views and great way to spend a day or overnight.

Great any time of year. MicroSpikes can be a big help in certain spots in winter.

Awesome hike. Trail for the most part is well maintained. Gets hard to follow when you first get to Whale Lake, but just keep going straight. You'll feel the last 1/2 mile in your legs but easily doable. Finished roundtrip in just about 3 hours.

Fun, quick, scenic

great ski trail and race course.

Great hike. Beautiful fall day, overcast, 50 degrees. A number of muddy spots to step through or step around. Lots of rocks and tree roots to deal with. One water crossing to be made, guaranteed to get your feet wet. Five hour round trip for two 65 year-olds including a half hour lunch at the top.

The trail is used just enough so the snow isn't so bad. Wish that portion along the roads was better.

I grew up in these woods and love coming back here with my dog to hike.

Love this place! Had a great time with my kid here. Be a responsible parent and watch your children. There are some dangerous places a child could end up if not supervised. Well kept trails, and very beautiful scenery. Highly recommend!

Very beautiful place tucked back in some acres. The trails are nice, expect to see horses. Also, expect to overstep horse manure. There is a nice pavilion to host party's, weddings, etc. Also there is some neat history on the trails, and a graveyard you can hike a steep hill to. Plenty of camp space, and many local areas also to stay.

Love this place for hiking. Unfortunately, people don't realize how beautiful their parks are, or never visit them.

Being local, we use this trail quite frequently for just going on nice walks. There are many places to stop and rest, and some little shelter cabin type buildings to take shelter in if you are lucky enough to be near one if weather turns. Trail is maintained well. May see all kinds of wildlife and livestock. No predator animals to be weary of. This is not Grizzly country, and black bears are Extremely rare, but are spotted once in a blue moon. Highly recommend. Lanesboro has many places to visit also, everybody is friendly. Also do the trail to Rushford from Lanesboro. Old Barn Resort is a nice place to stop to eat on the trail.

The bridge is out near Jab Farm. We hiked 4+ miles in the snow only to have to turn around and double back so close to the end. Made for an unexpected long day. Crossing the river in the winter would have been a bad idea. This information should be posted at the trailhead. The trail itself is nice and the area is remote and lovely.

There is a trail there. That's about it.

Had an amazingly beautiful ski today. Trail was groomed perfectly after our big snow.
