Fond du Lac State Forest Trails

Fond du Lac State Forest Trails

Thirty-seven miles of trails wind throughout the 64,000 acre Fond du Lac State Forest. Some sections offer wide, gentle curves while the majority are narrow with tighter curves and corners. Much of the route follows ridges that border wetlands, marshy areas, wooded swamps and shallow wild-rice lakes. Trails located within the forest offer more challenging loops, and a gravel pit provides riders with a large practice area. The Fond du Lac State Forest is classified as LIMITED. Trails are maintained by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
