Howard Fenton, former Peace Corps worker, biologist by trade, recreational hiker and bird-watcher by inclination, has trekked trails on four continents from the Sierra Nevada to Western Samoa. When he moved to Minnesota from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, he couldn't find a top-quality trail guide to the arrowhead region so he wrote it!
Filled with tempting trails and intriguing trailside lore, this comprehensive guide introduces hikers of all abilities to the unique natural beauty of northeastern Minnesota. Choose a hike to match your mood, time frame and adventure level. Climb ridges and mountains along the North Shore for panoramic views of Lake Superior. Ramble along gently flowing streams and wildly dashing rivers. Amble over boardwalks through wetlands and across the tops of beaver dams.
Stride-by-stride milepost information accurately describes the route of each hike so you can easily keep your bearings. For pre-hike preparation or on-the-trail exploration, enjoy the wealth of natural history information on geology, plants, and animals you're likely to see, along with other points of interest and some history about the people who traveled these paths in the past. Search for evidence of how the violent volcanic past and the inching glaciers have shaped the land. Look for lady's slippers, trillium, pitcher plants. Watch for beavers, broad-winged hawks, white-tailed deer, even black bears!
