people asked to see more of this appealing area, and we're looking forward
to continuing deeper into the mixed northern woodlands of the George
Washington State Forest. Look for wildlife as you pass Hartley, Scooty and
Wolf lakes, which border the trail, and take in some sweet vistas over the
Prairie River. If you want to stick around a while, the Wolf Lake county
campground is accessible from the trail.
the Thistledew ATV Trail takes full advantage of this special landscape
of mature Norway pines and aspen. The 25-mile system consists of a
north and south loop through the George Washington State Forest
that are shared with horseback riders. The north loop showcases Five
Island, Buttonbox and Crumb Lakes, while the south loop winds around
Thistledew Lake. Riders can camp at the Buttonbox and Thistledew
campgrounds in the George Washington State Forest.
ORV Trail, Minnesota's first Grant-in-Aid ORV trail, covers some of
state's most gripping terrain, including rocky gorges, granite boulders and
a ridge along part of the Laurentian Divide.
