NCROC Recreational Trail System

The University of Minnesota NCROC's Research Forest hosts several miles of multipurpose trails through various forested stands. Take some time to walk through our black spruce bog, ski through our 200 year old natural regeneration, and snowshoe through the Chapman Plantation, Minnesota's oldest red pine research plantation. We are proud to host a segment of the North Country Trail, the longest trail of the US National Trail System trails, stretching over 4,600 miles across seven states. Come see our research at NCROC!
