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.
