Comments

This out-of-the-way SNA is adjacent to Wisconsin’s Black Lake Bog State Natural Area. It is located within the Nemadji State Forest, a victim of the Minnesota DNR’s preferential treatment of motorized outdoor activities.

Vehicle Access
The only access to this SNA is by the Gandy Dancer state ATV/OHM trail, or by canoe from Wisconsin. Off road vehicles (ORVs) are allowed on the Gandy Dancer Trail south of Harlis Road, a forest road north of the SNA. The GPS coordinates above are on the Gandy Dancer Trail.
