Recreation:
Solana State Forest OHV Trails
7.5 miles north of McGrath on Highway 65

The terrain in the forest is mostly level to gently rolling and contains many swampy areas. Slightly over half of the area within the forest is wetland. Timber harvesting, reforestation, and wildlife habitat improvement occur throughout this forest. There are no campgrounds within the forest, however dispersed camping is allowed provided state forest rules are followed. The White Pine forest road is the main connector between the trails located east and west of State Highway 65. In 2008, a 13 mile loop will be completed that will connect with the existing Soo Line ATV (all-terrain-vehicle) Trail.
