Ely to Tresle Inn

10 posts in this topic

Family is thinking about going to Ely over presidents weekend, wondering how far via sleds it is to the Tresle Inn from Ely?

Im looking for time vs miles, I realialze it depends on how fast you drive but ball park would be great.

we have some time to get more snow before we head up, but does anyone have currant trail/snow conditions?

thanks.

Well since no one else is giving any ideas. I would think on a nice day with the family making stops at outhouse and warming houses it maybe about a 2.5 to 3 hrs there. But the last time I did it was a full blown blizzered at night and took us about 4hrs since we could not even see the trail ;)

Its about 65 miles (I know you said time but.....) from Ely to the Trestle.  I would say leech is about right on for a nice family ride.  Its one of my favorite sections of trail, never know what you're gonna see along there.  Seen moose, fisher, ermine, deer and lots of wolf tracks in the past.

Xplorer do you remember if the Crooked Lake lodge still sells gas? I'm not sure where MCI will be able to top off to head back up to Ely unless they head down to the Shore. I don't think there's any gas in Isabella the last I remember in the winter?

Last year there was a sign pointing that way with GAS painted on it ,,,I havent been there this year yet so Im not gonna say they still sell gas 

I can look at some HCS posts and see if they sell gas
