Going camping to Split Rock Lighthouse State Park with a friend of mine. Looking to do some hiking. Any trails anyone can recommend in the park or in the area? We are looking for 1-4 hr hikes. Thanks.


Attached is the website that has a map of the area. There are some hiking trails on the map. http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/maps/state_parks/spk00266_summer.pdf

My friend and I are hiking the Appalachian Trail this summer after graduation. We’re both athletic and are willing to work HARD to get in shape for this. He is a skier, and I am a runner and the more punishing the work out the better, but it has to be relevant, so bring it please.



Get comfortable hiking 20-30 miles with weight on your back in the actual boots you will be using. As importantly, do A LOT of research into the details – what to take along, what locations are available to replenish your food, etc, etc. Read, read, read. Have fun.
