Visitors to the water-rich Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness can enjoy solitude and primitive recreation in an area where early Native Americans, missionaries, and explorers once traveled. Expertly researched and created in partnership with local land management agencies, National Geographic's Trails Illustrated map of Boundary Waters East provides an unparalleled tool for exploring this region of Superior National Forest. Some of the key areas of interest featured on this map include Eagle Mountain, Lake Isabella State Forest, Chik-Wauk Museum Nature Center, Kekekabic and Border Route trails, and Gunflint Trail National Scenic Byway.
Designed with a wide range of visitors in mind, this map features detailed and easy-to-read hiking, bike, snowmobile, cross-country ski and snowshoe trails, as well as portages, accurate road network, and contact information for local agencies.
