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.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
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!
