i love this trail. but don't come here, there are huge swarms of flies, mosquitos at night, and wolves that will give your dog the spooks. not to mention the continous elevation changes, and the inevitable wet stream crossings. it's the most beautiful place in minnesota but it really is a challenging trail, stay at home unless you really know how to do this right.

I hiked and camped on the west side of this trail during the fall. It has a number of nice scenic overlooks that give great views of Angleworm Lake, Home Lake and a valley to the west with splendid fall colors. We stayed at a nice campsite on the northwest side of Angleworm lake (caught one pike for dinner). The trail was in good condition (west side at least) and easy to follow. It was a good 3 day backpacking trip with two young 1st time backpackers. It was recommended by the Forest Service over Snowbank/Big Pines trail due to the fact it was better condition.
