Hiking trail

Nice two mile hiking trail has beautiful views and ends at a pristine lake that can be canoed. So peaceful and quiet.

Dock your boat at the trail head & prepare for a lovely hike on this remote trail. The closest public access is at the Woodenfrog State Campground on the shore of Lake Kabetogama. Highlights are the beaver dam and the hiking trail has beautiful views and ends at a pristine lake that can be canoed. But plan ahead and get... More

Pack plenty of water and a snack for your hike. You'll go through bogs, beaver dams, hilltops and end at Locator Lake. Before you go go to the Kabetogama Visitor Center to rent a canoe to paddle around in while you are there. You should also pack your swimsuit and take advantage of a great lake to simw in.
