This hiking guide covers Minnesota's northern arboreal forests; its western prairies; its lush deciduous forests, and its distinctive southeastern Mississippi River bluffs. Each chapter includes driving directions to the trailhead; a helpful topographic map; notes about trail mileage and estimated hiking time; a trail description with safety cautions; and stories of the human, environmental, and geological history that you will encounter. It is obviously a labor of love.
