We created this Aerial 360 while on assignment for Visit Grand Rapids as a part of the Live Like a Local campaign. About an hour north of Old Central School, this has to be on your Minnesota Bucket List. Find out what the U.S. Forest Service has to say below.

"Experience the forest of yesteryear at the Lost Forty. Minnesota

was one of the largest timber-producing states in the country in the late 1800s, but 144 acres of red and white pines went untouched by loggers when a surveying error mapped the area as part of Coddington Lake."



"The survey crew's error in 1882, became one of Minnesota's greatest treasures. Today, less than two percent of Minnesota's forested land contains old growth timber."

"The Lost Forty pines are 300-400 years old, originating when the pilgrims came to America. The trees remain as remnants of the natural resources that drew people to new frontiers and shaping America’s character. A one-mile, self-guided trail winds its way through the towering pines of the Lost Forty."
