Overview

Hiking in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.
This all-new hiking guide covers Minnesota's distinct areas of terrain and habitat—the northern arboreal forests, the western prairies, the deciduous forests, and the southeastern Mississippi River bluffs. These diverse areas offer a wide variety of hiking experiences, flora and fauna, and spectacular vistas. Ranging from easy walks of several miles to daylong outings, these hikes take advantage of Minnesota's extensive and well-maintained state and national parks. Bonus destinations of historical importance or scenic value also are described. Each chapter includes driving directions to the trailhead, a topographic map, trail mileage and estimated hiking time, a trail description with safety notes, and stories of the human, natural, and geological history you'll encounter along the way.

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.
