We think it’s the most spectacular view of Lake Superior anywhere– if you hike to the Pincushion Mountain overlook on a sunny day you will agree. The Cook County High School holds their fall cross country meet on these trails – if you like running through the woods the hilly terrain will definitely hold your interest. But running, hiking, strolling and just plain ambling are all encouraged – keep an eye out for pine martens, wolves and the occasional moose.

The annual Fisherman’s Picnic Trail Run and the Pincushion Family Ski Festival are the two big community gatherings each year, young kids ski on the weekends in the Y-ski league, the high school runners are on the trails a lot, you may encounter a high school cross country ski race in the winter or an informal fall leaf hike in September, or you may find blissful solitude.

The trails have been developed by the NSSRC in conjunction with the USFS and Cook County. NSSRC was named Outstanding Volunteer Organization for 1999 by the US Forest Service. We invite you to join the NSSRC, be a part of this great trail system.

See you on the trails!
