The 8.4-mile Saunders State Tail links with the Gandy Dancer Trail
at Borea, southwest of Superior, and continues into Minnesota, where it is known as the Soo Line Trail
(southern route). The trail is popular with snowmobilers, equestrians, ATVers, mountain bikers, hikers and cross-country skiers. Its surface is rough ballast. During summer you'll find wild raspberries and a variety of flowers growing along the trail.
