The little town of Boulder Junction probably has more miles of bike trails per capita than any place in the country. Several years ago, local people formed B.A.T.S. (Boulder Junction Area Trail System) and did a bang-up job of signing a ten-mile mountain bike loop on local snowmobile and XC trails. At the same time, the town opened a paved trail running south to the picturesque picnic area on Trout Lake. For the mountain biker, the loop through the dense forest is highlighted by small streams and lakes. A short spur runs north to Fishtrap Dam, a great place to take a break and perhaps to spot soaring bald eagles waiting to swoop down and pluck a fish. The paved trail, while following County M, rolls with the natural contour of the land and darts in and out of the forest. Either way you can thank the people of Boulder Junction for a beautiful day in the woods.
