Up on the Border: Rainy River from Voyageurs National Park to Lake of the Woods Professional Review and Guide

"Water is omnipresent on this two-part drive along Minnesota’s wild, sparsely populated border with Canada. Choose either a quick trip to island-studded Voyageurs National Park, or a 100-mile route along the wooded banks of the Rainy River to Lake of the Woods, one of the largest lakes on the continent and home to trophy-size walleye and sturgeon. Both routes leave from International Falls, a town that relishes its bone-chilling winters.

Special attractions: Boise Cascade mill tours and Ice Box Days (only for the truly hardy) in International Falls; Grand Mound, the largest prehistoric burial mound in the Upper Midwest; guided boat tours, wilderness hiking, and snowmobiling in Voyageurs National Park; boating and fishing on Rainy River and Lake of the Woods; hiking, fishing, and bird watching at Zippel Bay State Park; opportunity to see deer, moose, bears, bald eagles, loons, and other wildlife. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more."
