Northern Minnesota's weather is fairly mild and warm in the summer, though it can change often and fast. It is always a good idea to bring several layering items to shed or add on to your outfit if needed. Don't forget your rain gear too! And if you are considering hiking the trails, bring close-toed shoes or a sturdy sandal like Teva's or Chacos--don't forget the bug spray too, just in case! If you forget anything, we have quite a few options for warm-weather gear in our gift shop.
