Saunders State Trail Description

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.

Saunders State Trail Reviews


I biked this trail from the Wisconsin line to the end. Wooded and very nice scenery. The surface was thickly covered with heavy ballast rock. Some places it was a foot deep of loose rock. When the trail turns north towards Superior it starts to get usable. There's a tiny trail ends sign at a road crossing but the trail continues on. This section is not maintained and is the only usable section. Turned into a nice rideable section but ends at the next road crossing on Ames Road. Not usable for hiking, biking or horseback riding. A waste of a good rail to trail section that could link Superior to the Soo Line trails and the Munger Trail.
