Boundary Waters Wilderness Paddling and Hiking Trails - Backpacker

Boundary Waters

Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, located in Minnesota’s Superior National Forest, is a great spot for paddling, canoeing and fishing. And while much of the action in this northern wilderness happens on the water, many hikes in Boundary waters are to be had by the intrepid backpackers among us. Try the 30-mile Pow-Wow trail loop if you want to see some of Boundary Waters' backcountry lakes, or climb Eagle Mountain to reach Minnesota's highest peak. Camping in Boundary Waters is also popular among the park's 250,000 annual visitors, a number that makes this wilderness area among the most visited in the entire United States
