Hunting & Hiking In The Ely, MN Area

Hunting With Us

Your hunting experience can be within the Superior National Forest or, for the more challenging and secluded hunt, inside the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Deer, black bear, grouse, and waterfowl are all within reach from Snowbank Lodge and Outfitters location. All hunts are currently self guided.  We do not offer guide services at this time.  Let us make your hunt comfortable and easy from the shores of Snowbank Lake by staying in one of our heated and running water facilities. In the evenings our lodge is open to share stories and friendships. Retire to your room at the end of the day for a hot shower and a solid nights sleep to prepare for your next day of hunting. Let us make your hunt easy and comfortable at Snowbank Lodge and Outfitters.

Hiking With Us

Experience the beauty and solitude of Northern Minnesota’s wilderness hiking trails. Touch the raw purity of nature at a slow pace. Day hike or over-night hike on one of the nearby trails that vary in difficulty and distance. For the most experienced hikers trek the 41 mile long Kekekabic Trail through the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. The “Kek” will put your land navigation skills, hiking knowledge, physical toughness, and, at times, your physical agility to the test. For a shorter, yet challenging excursion, hike the 26 mile Snowbank Trail which cuts its way around the circumference of Snowbank Lake. The Kekekabic and Snowbank trails can both be completed from start to finish or smaller day hikes can be done. Both trail heads are a short walk from our location on Snowbank Lake. Less difficult and shorter picturesque trails also exist nearby for day trips. These trails include the Secret/Blackstone Trail (approximately 8 miles), the Kawishiwi Falls Trail (approximately 1.5 miles), and many others. Start and end your overnight hiking trips at one of our rooms to get a rested, fresh start and hot shower to begin your hike or trip home. Or, use one of our accommodations to use as a base camp each day to hike different trails throughout your stay. Let us make your hiking adventures easy.
