Overview

Featuring 100 of the best day hikes, Hiking Minnesota makes it easy to enjoy self-guided tours of trails winding through the natural beauty of the state. The book features many of the area's most popular as well as least-known hiking trails, including routes from

- Grand Portage National Monument at the very northeast corner to Blue Mounds State Park in the southwest corner,
- the vast Superior National Forest to the tiny Minnesota River Valley National Wildlife Refuge,
- the 34,000 acres of St. Croix State Park to the 200 acres of Temperance River State Park, and
- the shores of Lake Superior in Gooseberry Falls State Park to the headwaters of the Mississippi River in Itasca State Park.

Every hike in the book includes an easy-to-read map that shows the trail's distance; approximate hiking time; difficulty rating; points of interest; and descriptions of the area's history, terrain, flora, and fauna. It also includes important information about the parks where many of the trails are located, such as hours and dates of operation, facilities available, applicable rules, permits required, and directions to the trailheads.

Hiking Minnesota will inspire you to take full advantage of the many hiking opportunities in the Land of 10,000 Lakes, and it will guide you to the most scenic and interesting places along each trail. With all the detailed information presented, each hike will be educational as well as enjoyable.
