Hike to Health: Trails Passport kit

Start hiking to health today!

Hike to Health: Trails Passport Program NOW AVAILABLE!

Need a little boost of encouragement to get outside and explore? Voyageurs National Park has developed the Trails Passport Program. To get started visit one of our three visitor centers and ask for the Trails Passport book. Learn about the locations, different types and endurance levels of the park trails, pick the trails for you and start hiking. As you hike, look for a raised designated trail marker, located along the trail, and use a pencil or crayon to make a rubbing of that designated trail marker on the corresponding page in the Trails Passport book.

Upon the completion of 5 trails, 10 trails and all of the trails, bring your passport filled with rubbings back to a visitor center to receive special recognition.

Check out who's completed the Trail's Passport Program already!

Your choice in fishing tackle can have an effect on park wildlife. It takes only one lead sinker to kill a loon. Non-lead alternatives are available in local stores and at Voyageurs National Park visitor centers.
