Very nice area to ride,a lot of trails.I ride mostly the single track stuff on dirtbike but the atv/ohm trails are nice too.Nothing too difficult that I've come across on those. You can drop in Akeley if you like,we use the trail head parking area north of the Stomping Grounds which is a good place to have lunch (great burgers ). Should be a good weekend if it doesn't rain,cool and few bugs to boot!

Dozer,

My husband is from Akeley, so we go up there a lot.

The Stompin Grounds is a good place to start (they do have good food). They have a HSOforum [Admin Note: Please read Forum Policy before posting again. Thank you] Click on Forests/Trails and there is a DNR link.

A good place to pick up a map of the Paul Bunyan State Forest is Bunyans Convenience store on the East side of Akeley on Hwy 34, before Hwy 64 goes North. They also do organized trail rides, but I'm not sure of the schedule.

If you have GPS, take it with you to draw your trail in case you get turned around up there.

Have fun - and please respect nature. We are visitors!!

We rode the area late last summer. We hit Round River Paul Bunyan State Forest, Forest Riders and others in the area. Plenty of official trails as well as unofficial trails in the area. I second the GPS idea, I am glad we had ours with last year. You can go to the DNR HSOforum and view trail maps and print the PDF's or when you have more time give them a call and request a book of all the maps for the trails in the entire state!! I believe they are FREE!!

    • What specific things make him indecent or classless?    Did he grab women by the pu**y? Did he make fun of a disabled reporter? Did he call most Mexicans rapists? Did he make fun of John McCain because he was captured in Vietnam? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was born in Kenya? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was a Muslim? Did he say Megyn Kelly had "blood coming out of her wherever"? Did he say "Laziness is a trait in the blacks"?   I'd be interested to know what things Obama has done that are more indecent and classless than this.
    • Imagine an Obama who loved this country and had 8 years to show that.  The guy is smart, charismatic, and very likeable.  Instead we had 8 years of anti american ideology, lies, and race baiting. He chose that path, not me.
    • What reasons did you vote for Trump? Did it ever occur to you that those reasons may have been just things to get you to vote for him?
    • I know. I guess I forgot to put the  after my post.     Court decisions is what I was referring to because I also do not know of any laws officially separating church and state. There may be laws at the state or local level I don't know. The 1st amendment is not always interpreted by courts the same way. 
    • He has chosen to skip over decency and you earn respect, he is the one who had 8 years to show respect and class and failed.  He could have been the greatest president ever and unite this country but chose otherwise.  Even in his last days he is despicable.  That said i wont bow down to Trump and he needs to earn the respect obama has not.  Time will tell.
    • Anyone who thinks this country isn't heading to single payer, government funded healthcare is fooling themselves. I'm not in favor of it but we may as well just do it and get it over with now.
    • But will you recognize it? Just like I am sure that President Obama has signed legislation and done other things that YOU think are "good things"  for America that Sledneck doesn't recognize.
    • I give up.  Because it gets people to vote for them?    
    • Why would they worry about the debt, we can just print money????
    • It is a special accommodation for a particular religion.     No law states that that I am aware of.  Perhaps you have more information.  Just some court decisions which while they may be binding are not laws.
