National Forest Lodge has been a cross country skiing and snowshoeing destination resort in Northern Minnesota since the 1970s when the Flathorn/Gegoka ski trails were developed next to us.  It's a spectacular wilderness setting only half an hour from Lake Superior's North Shore.  We're closer than ski resorts up the Gunflint Trail, so you can save both time and money by spending a ski weekend with us.

30km of single tracked classic cross country ski trails meander through 2,000 thickly forested acres of the Superior National Forest. We're located at the top of the continental divide, which means snow comes early in the season and stays late. Year after year, these trails get consistently reliable snow cover.

Our simple cozy cabins are nestled under towering red and white pines.  A perfect place to settle in after a day on the ski trails. National Forest Lodge offers a unique winter getaway of great cross country skiing, snowshoeing, hearty food, friendly hospitality, live music and much more.

The experience of skiing and snowshoeing through the "Big Pines" at National Forest Lodge resort can be found in few other places. Picture a brilliant blue sky amidst towering red and white pines blanketed in heavy snow...

Commentary:
NO SKIING! Well over 300 trees cleared last week from early season heavy snow and winds. Big thanks to the Forest Service for sending a couple crews out to help! Far western portions of the trail system are still waiting attention.  Until there is fresh snow atop the old hard snow and litter, we will not be attempting to groom.
