Entry Date: October 24, 2018
Entry Point: Angleworm Lake
Number of Days: 1
Group Size: 1

Trip Introduction:
Three hour forty seven minute trail run of the Angleworm Trail.


Forecast was for Wednesday to be the only sunny day of the whole week. So I used some credit hours and went to the Angleworm trail for the day. It is a really nice trail not very many trees down. The bog right after the first intersection going counterclockwise was wet. There are lots of really nice views of the lake. Lots of ups and downs to rocky outcroppings with nice red and white pines. I ran the whole trail in just under four hours. I would highly recommend this trail for anyone as an introduction to backpacking in the BWCA.
