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.
