The Gandy Dancer State Trail is an awesome scenic drive through the two state forests. Nemadji State Forest and St. Croix State Forest. The trail is an abandoned railroad track. On our trip, we saw a lot of wildlife, scenic water landscapes, and some great wildflower patches. The Gandy Dancer State Trail is the only vehicle access to the Black Lake Bog State Nature Area. The entire trail runs from Taylors Falls MN to Black River WI. The Minnesota portion of the trail is open to all types of off-road vehicles.
