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.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
