Hike Through Beautiful Oak Savanna At The Little-Known Sand Dunes State Forest In Minnesota

If you’ve spent time in Minnesota, you probably know about some of our most famous forests. The vast Superior National Forest draws hikers and campers throughout the year. And smaller forests, such as the Lost 40 or the Minnesota-shaped forest, are unique parts of history that also bring in plenty of visitors. But there are some less popular forests that are well worth visiting, too. For example, have you ever heard of Sand Dunes State Forest? This little-known place is full of beautiful nature scenes and plenty to do.
