You think the Oregon Trail was tough? Centuries before folks were traversing the country for gold, Native American tribes in Minnesota were using the Savanna Portage to get between the Mississippi River and Lake Superior. This northern Minnesota taste of history is in Savanna State Forest, just outside the coastal town of Duluth. The gnarly path was nearly impossible to travel before a wooden boardwalk was built over the peat bogs and foggy marshes, a trail that’s now on the National Register of Historic Places and open for walking.

There’s also all sorts of water recreation to be had at the forest’s Big Sandy Lake, where cranes and swans roam free. At the end of the day, fall asleep to the gentle hooting of owls at the private, dispersed campsites at Hay Lake Campground, where you and your friends can pretend you’re resting along your journey to Lake Superior!
