Back Country Hiking in Minnesota
Accessible only by boat makes the hiking trails on the Kabetogama Peninsula an adventure to explore. The most extensive remote trail system in Voyageurs National Park is the Cruiser Lake Trails. The Cruiser Lake Trail system is a through hike across the Kabetogama Peninsula from the north shore of Lake Kabetogama to the south shore of Rainy Lake with Cruiser Lake near the midpoint.
As Tracy can attest, hiking this stretch of trails you are truly able to experience Voyageurs country, from tranquil wetlands and rugged shorelines to windswept cliffs. You hear only the sound of nature and rarely see another person on the trail. It’s also your best bet to track and see Moose.
