    Boating at Voyageurs

    The vast majority of Voyageurs National Park is only accessible by water so boating is a very popular way of getting around the park. All four parts of the park have parking for the boat trailers, boat ramps and lots of dock space.

    Tilson Creek Ski Trail

    The last trail I will cover is the Tilson Creek Ski Trail. This is a 2 mile loop trail that is moderate in difficulty. The trail is set up for snowshoeing and cross country skiing in the winter. The trailhead is near the Tilson Bay Boat Launch.

    Equipment: Good walking shoes, water, sunscreen, a hat, insect repellant, a snack, weather appropriate clothing, don't forget your camera!

    Echo Bay Trail

    Echo Bay Hiking Trail
    2 more images

    A fine choice for a hiking trail in the Kabetogama Lake Area is the Echo Bay Trail. This is an easy 2.5 mile loop trail (although be advised it is quite wet and muddy after a rain). The trail winds through aspen and pine groves and is great for bird watching. If you are here at the right time there is a Great Blue Heron Rookery along the trail. The trailhead is 3 miles from the Kabetogama Lake Visitors Center just off County Road 122.

    Equipment: Good walking shoes, water, sunscreen, a hat, insect repellant, a snack, weather appropriate clothing, don't forget your camera!

    Beaver Pond Trail

    Beaver Pond Trail
    2 more images

    The last trail I hiked in the Ash River area was the Beaver Pond Overlook Trail. This moderate difficulty, .4 mile trail leads to a rocky ledge that juts high above an old abandoned beaver pond. The first short section of this trail is accessible; but then you have a short but steep climb up the rocks. The trailhead is the second trailhead as you leave the Ash River Visitors Center.

    Equipment: Good walking shoes, water, sunscreen, a hat, insect repellant, a snack, weather appropriate clothing, don't forget your camera!

    Kab Ash Trail

    Kab Ash Trail

    The Kab Ash Trail is a 27.87 long trail that leads through backcountry forests and wetlands, and links the Kabetogama and Ash River parts of the park. There are four trailheads at different parts off the trail so you can hike all of it or just parts of it (as I did).

    Equipment: Good walking shoes, water, sunscreen, a hat, insect repellant, a snack, weather appropriate clothing, don't forget your camera!

    Blind Ash Bay Trail

    Blind Ash Bay Trail
    2 more images

    This is not only my favorite hiking trail at Voyageurs National Park, it is one of my favorites anywhere. The hike is moderate in difficulty and takes you through a very pretty wooded area with a variety of plant and animal life; but also gives beautiful views of Lost Lake, Kabetogama Lake, and Blind Ash Bay. Blind Ash Bay got its name because so many boat travelers made the turn into this dead end and had to backtrack. This is a 2.8 mile loop trail that is pretty rocky in places. The trailhead is located at the Kabetogama Lake Overlook near the Ash River Visitors Center.

    Equipment: Good walking shoes, water, sunscreen, a hat, insect repellant, a snack, weather appropriate clothing, don't forget your camera!
