Guide to Hiking the North Country Trail in Minnesota: Across prairies, the north woods, and the wilderness
Explore the silence of lake country in the Boundary Waters' long, cold winter. Stop to enjoy the amazing spring wildflower show under the hardwood forest's canopy in the Chippewa National Forest. See a hawk swoop down over the vibrant green prairie to grab a mouse. Take a break in an oldgrowth pine forest older than our nation in Itasca. Stop to watch a raging river plummeting down toward Lake Superior on the North Shore. Enjoy the beauty of Minnesota's four seasons on this Trail that connects amazing scenery, culture, and history across northern Minnesota.
Guide to Hiking the North Country Trail in Minnesota details approximately 800 miles of the North Country National Scenic Trail's path across Minnesota. The Trail is one of only 11 National Scenic Trails in the entire U.S. and since 1980, over 3,000 miles (out of an estimated 4,600 mile length) have been built by the North Country Trail Association's amazing volunteer force.
