Emily - Blind Lake Trail

Emily - Blind Lake Trail

The Emily Blind Lake ATV Trail is a 16-mile multi-use trail connecting the Emily Outing ATV trails with the Blind Lake Connector ATV trail and the Northwoods regional trail system. From the east and the City of Emily, the trail winds its way around Lake Emily and then travels through the tall red pines of the Emily State Forest. You will cross above a wetland on a 200-foot elevated bridge, ride over 2200 feet of wooden boardwalk, and pass through low areas and black spruce swamps. The trail is heavily wooded, and winds its way through the forests of rural Crow Wing and Aitkin counties. Use the Selfie Station at mile marker 7 to capture your ride.
