About the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness

Located within the Superior National Forest – the BWCAW is a designated remote area that is enjoyed via canoe or hiking, as motors and equipment with mechanical advantage are not allowed. As a day guest into the wilderness, you may take a step back in time and enjoy the wilderness more closely than before. Read more on the USFS website here.

Wear Sturdy Shoes. Your feet will get wet when out canoe, but it it important to wear footwear that will stand up on portages.

Snacks. and extra snacks. Bring more than you think you will need, exposure to the elements with the physical activity will be more strenuous than you may think.

Extra Layers. The weather can change quickly when you are out on the water!
