Hiking on high ridges that border a long narrow lake, featuring scenic overlooks on high bedrock ridges and big red and white pine old-growth forests. The loop around Angleworm Lake has everything you would expect a Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness trail to have: a beautiful lake, a forest full of big, old trees, and a rugged path with many wildlife viewing opportunities. Angleworm Lake is shaped more like a river than a lake, with the water filling up a narrow gorge between two high ridges, where in the middle it is quite literally just a stone’s throw across to the other side. The trail runs along both sides of the lake, passes by beaver dams, and through large stands of old-growth forests. This hike could be managed as a day hike, though it is a better bet to take some time and enjoy it fully by camping at any of the sites along the rocky shore.
