Cross Country ski Astrid Lake area
There are over six miles of trail in the Astrid Lake Trail system. Visitors may ski a variety of loops for a day tour, or choose a winter camping experience. Permits are not required for use of this trail system since it is outside the Boundary Waters Canoe Area
There are wilderness-type campsites with firegrates and box latrines on the lakes along the trail. They are generally located on short spur trails off the main trail. These spur trails are not signed. Opportunities for solitude are excellent during the winter season. Less than one-half mile from the trailhead at Lake Jeanette, skiers approach County Road 116, the Echo Trail. Use extreme caution when crossing this road as motorists on it are generally unprepared for pedestrians crossing. Once across, the trail meets the portage from Lake Jeanette to Nigh Lake. This is a rare chance to experience a spruce bog while keeping your feet dry.
Astrid Lake Area is about 29 miles northeast of Orr, MN.
