Nemadji

11 posts in this topic

My wife and I would like to head up to Nemadji in the end of Sept to ride some trails. She wants to stay in a hotel somewhere....I need some recommendations on where to stay. She mentioned Hinckley, but looks like that is still almost an hour away. Thanks in advance for any ideas!

Stay in Carlton, It is about a 25 minute scenic drive for the most part. It is located slightly North of the Nemadji area and easy access off of I-35. There is a few hotels there AmercInn was ATV friendly for trailer parking, nice and clean with WiFi. We used to stay there before we bought our camper. Across the Highway is the Black Bear Casino, which is newly expanded and also has hotel. Ther are also a few choices for a decent meal in the area.

Heading up there this weekend, staying at some hotel at the Nickerson Bar. It will be my first time up there, what can I expect at Nemajdi?

also are there any bars/eating establishments in the forest/along the trail?

Sorry Nickerson will be your only option for food and fuel. Once you are out in the woods you are on your own!

I would stay in Moose Lake at the AmericInn, or in Carlton. You can access the Sioux Line trail from Moose Lake and that can get you close, or right into the Nemadji area. There is another hotel in Carlton called "Royal Pines", not flashy, but a bed.

FYI~ The rain dumped on us yesterday, but it was gorgeous today.

Long ways to Nemadji from Moose Lake as you have to go through Superior WI and then south on the Gandy Dancer trail to Nemadji. This will also require a WI trail permit if you are from MN. Unless...there's a "secret" shortcut I don't know about.

    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC. 
    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
