UPM Blandin Trail
Located off the Rabey Line, the 21-mile UPM Blandin Trail travels through a wooded landscape of upland spruce and northern hardwood, with several small stream crossings. A short spur trail leads to an overlook and picnic area. This trail is ideal for riders of all experience levels and offers a scenic ride during the fall months. The trail is provided by Itasca County and maintained by Rapids Riders ATV Club.
From Grand Rapids, go 7.5 miles south on Hwy. 169, then east on Smith Dr. From Hill City, go 7.5 miles north on Hwy. 169, then east on Smith Dr.
