Take the path less traveled
There is no better way to enjoy the pristine solitude of Northern Minnesota’s forests than on a pair of snowshoes. Let an experienced guide take you off the beaten path on an interpretive hike through the powdery woods of Cook County. Walk through snow covered trees, follow fox tracks, explore frozen beaver ponds, all under the safe and knowledgeable eye of an experienced guide. Bring the whole family and learn local natural history. Take the path less traveled and have a genuine North Shore experience.
