Fond du Lac State Forest
•Hikers and cross-country skiers can find great scenery with moderate trail variation. Trails are easy enough to bring your beginner friends, challenging enough for a good workout. Other recreational opportunities within the forest include canoeing and riding on Fond du Lac State Forest OHV Trails.
•Fond du Lac State Forest is a wetland/forest complex with several large, shallow wild rice lakes and extensive areas of marsh and wooded swamp. A large portion of the land that is now Fond du Lac State Forest was swept by the great Cloquet Fire of 1918 and was periodically burned after that to create or maintain clearings until the 1930s.
