Soo Line

13 posts in this topic

Has anyone ever ran the whole Soo Line trail? Just wondering how long it would take to run the whole trail? Seems like it would be boring but at least you could say you did it.

Northern or southern part?

"The entire trail is 226 miles long. This includes the 112-mile Northern Route from Moose Lake in Carlton County to Cass Lake in Cass County and the 114-mile Southern Route from Genola in Morrison County to Superior in Douglas County, Wisconsin."

Over the years I have run several parts of both, but never the entire thing at once. Also they connect, but go different places so doing the "whole thing" would be difficult. At 226 miles I'd think there would have to be some camping involved to do the whole thing. wink

I've thought about the same thing only on rangers, get 3 or 4 together ride from Hwy 10 (little falls) to cass lake, ride back to the split and go to superior, then ride back to little falls.

Soo line south now goes to Little Falls instead of stopping at Genola. We rode from Moose Lake to Palisade on the the Soo line North last weekend. Plenty dusty and rough. Ridden most every section. Most we ever did was 106 miles in one day. That was enough.

talked to a couple guys a few years ago up there who rode the entire North and South Soo Lines. Took 2 days so yes, camping is a must.

That much seat time would result in a bad case of chaffage.

would probably be a good time for a side X side. Haul all the gear plus comfort, maybe?

An atv and an Otter Utility Trailer would also be handy for this trip to haul your tents, food, etc. I need to get a cover made for mine since Otter doesn't make one for the smaller sized trailer but we have considered a longer trip with the trailer.

Maybe in the spring we should get a group together and try it? Too much other stuff to do now in the fall.

Sxs would be the only way I'd do it, either in a ranger or rzr.

    • For something different and a little less expensive you could consider a Texas hog hunt.

    • Not nails but worse, they are self tappers from the metal roofing:)  Sorry, I need to take the angle grinder out there and zip those off this weekend.  Funny you bring up the name kabob, that is actually the name of one of them if they don't produce:)   Here is a short list of the names my kids came up with:   - Kabob - Soup - Nugget - Fried - Drummie - Pot Pie   I cant remember the others but you get the point...    
    •   I agree that in the long run, the very best thing that could be done is to completely repeal the ACA and then continue to reduce government involvement. The problem with that is this is a messed caused by government that would become a disaster at least short term for some folks if it were immediately repealed. At this point, government created the mess so it has an obligation to fix it with as little damage as possible to the people.
    •   No, I'm not totally discrediting any preventative measures, in fact I have stated time and time again that it is the best  safeguard against MOST diseases and other ailments. The fact though is that it will not safeguard you against EVERY ailment. You even go so far as to predict that you will still get cancer in your lifetime. If your preventative measures are a cure all, why do you believe you will still get cancer?   No matter how diligent you are with preventative measures you probably will not keep every ailment at bay. All I am saying is that when you are older you will find this out. I haven't seen anyone live forever yet.
