Find out how you can hike yourself to health!


Hike to Health: Trails Passport Program-Spring 2014

To add a little incentive to the Hike to Health Program, the Trail Passport Program will be launched Spring 2014!

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, 10, and all of the park hiking trails, stop into a visitor center to receive a reward.
