Visit Minnesota’s Largest State Forest For A True Wilderness Experience

If you’re looking for adventure in Minnesota, head up north to the wilderness sanctuary that is MN’s largest state forest. Escape into the 878,040 acres of wild terrain surrounding the Big Fork State Water Trail, and experience the beauty of orchids, pines, and peatlands.

For another epic forest experience like this one, head to the Lost 40, where some of MN’s oldest and most beautiful trees were preserved through the logging years due to a mapping error!
