Spider Lake OHV Area

Saturday, June 13, 2015

Alt Names

Foot Hills State Forest, North Island Lake, Perch Lake, Bear Lake, Taylor Lake, Fire Tower Forest Road, Root Trail

Last Known StatusOpen

Located in northern Minnesota, this area offers 26 miles of scenic deep woods trails that offer panoramic views of the scattered nearby lakes. Ruts, roots and rocks are common and can make for challenging riding during wet weather. There are several primitive campsites that offer ample room for RVs but there are no services. Nearby Spider Lake offers a beach area and boat ramp.
