Hiking the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness

Hiking in the BWCA brings a refreshing and new perspective to this marvelous wilderness area…not only its lakes but its old growth forests, marshes, beaver dams, waterfalls, regrowth of burns and blow downs and Minnesota’s highest point, Eagle Mountain.

Join Rod Markin, experienced BWCA backpacker, for a picturesque presentation of the many short and long-distance hiking trails available in the BWCA – Kekekabic Trail, Sioux Hustler Foot Trail, Eagle Mountain Trail, Brule Lake Trail, Snowbank Lake Trail and the Pow Wow Trail – as well as preparation and opportunities for hiking these trails any time of year.

    Rod, great job, good material and coverage. I left trying to figure out how I could skip work and leave today! :-)

    Perhaps a follow-up 'how to do it' equipment session might be good. I'd welcome an open discussion as part of that to compare/contrast what I do with others, always plenty of room to learn. Again, thanks!

    Informative, nicely paced, humorous. I felt like I was getting a true read on the BWCA rather than a marketing speech.

    Wouldn't be a bad idea...though we turn away no one :-)
