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.

so....maybe it could be done in a long weekend if you didn't want to kill yourself but only one way?

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.

    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
