Description

The Cut Foot Sioux National recreation Trail is located in the heart of the Chippewa National Forest. The trail provides 22 miles of outstanding hiking and equestrian riding opportunities as it winds through mature stands of white and red pine, as well as many lakes, streams and wetlands indicative of Northern Minnesota. Connecting to the Cut Foot Sioux NRT is over 120 miles of equestrian trails, and the Cut Foot Sioux Horse Camp. This combination of trails and equestrian possibilities makes for a premier horseback riding destination.
The major partners involved with the development of the Cut Foot Horse Camp include the Minnesota Horse Council, the North Central Research Station, Grand Rapids and the Chippewa National Forest. Many local trail riding clubs and individuals also volunteered their time with contributions by the Minnesota Trail Riders Association.
