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.
