The Soo Line North begins at the community of Moose Lake, in Carlton County and stretches 15 miles towards Lawler. Following an abandoned railroad grade, the Soo Line North Trail is relatively flat with gentle, sweeping curves and travels through hardwood forests dotted with ponds. Many communities along the trail are ATV/OHM-friendly, allowing travel on posted roads within city limits.
