There’s No Forest In The World Like The Lost 40 In Minnesota

In Minnesota’s Northwoods, unbeknownst to many, there remains an untouched parcel of land that contains “old-growth” red and white pine trees that date back as far as 350 years. It’s called the Lost 40, and the simple one-mile hike is one of the most phenomenal in the state.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
