Pile the flapjacks high and pull out the flannel, cause Paul Bunyan is in the house! Actually, flip that. We’re in the house of Paul Bunyan. However, the trees in this state forest aren’t in any danger of being chopped down. It’s true this forest was once the site of a booming logging industry, but today the trees grow wild and free. It would even take a lumberjack legend like Bunyan countless lifetimes to cut through these 150,113 acres.

Instead, nowadays people come here for the hundreds of miles of trails that wind through the pine forests. The Paul Bunyan State Trail and North Country National Scenic Trail are two excellent places to start if you’re one of said people. If you’re itchin to go fishin or spend a night under the stars, check out Gulch Lake and Mantrap Lake, each of which feature their own campground. And always keep an eye out for the local wildlife that roam these parts. No promises you’ll see Babe the Blue Ox though!
