“visting the site of B52 crash”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

short hike in but you can not put into words what you will see as you walk into this site. It will hit you with some emotion to know men died there in the wreckage doing thier job.

“An amazing place honoring heroes, past and present”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Living in the Mooshead Lake Region, I had heard about the "B-52 crash site" for years, and just finally was able to go and experience it first-hand while family was visiting. I didn't really know what to expect. First though, there are a few different ways to get there, so do a little research, and it is listed in places as a 'hike,' although the way we went was more of a really long drive on dirt roads, with a little hike. Not sure if that is the norm. Anyway, for hikers you might expect more, but don't worry, it is worth the drive and the lack-of challenge. The way we went, certainly makes it accessible for all ages. It is a beautiful, somber spot, a great moment to reflect and give thanks to the men and women that serve our country and fight for our freedom. I cannot say enough good things about this experience other than, if you are in the area, you NEED to go...take your kids for a teachable, fun and active moment, take your loved ones, family, friends and parents to share an moment in time and history....it is breathtaking and honestly, considering its age, well preserved and cared for, thankfully. There are plaques of honor around, and a lot of information here and there...It's truly a special place. You will be glad that you took the time.

“Not too easy to find but worth it”
Reviewed June 4, 2011

After driving through the woods for what seemed like forever, we finally found the B-52 crash site. There may be an easier way to find the site but we had started off looking for moose and realized we were in the area of this site. It is a nice hike with lots of information posted along the way. Very well preserved and definitely a moving experience.
