There are no blazed trails. Boundaries are marked with small white KLT signs. No ATVs or motorized vehicles of any kind are permitted except on the designated snowmobile trail in the winter.

Trail Tips

Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces
Stick to established trails and campsites. If there's no trail, try to walk on rock, gravel, or snow and spread out so that your group doesn't create a trail.

This is a great trail. It is well maintained, offers different types and difficulty of walking. They NEED to post a no dog sign, however. I had hiked this area with my dog a couple of times before I logged on here and found I out I should not have done so!
