Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Sharing is caring!

North Country Scenic sunset

A North country scenic sunset in the Brule River State Forest along the North Country Scenic Trail

The North Country Scenic Trail winds its way through seven northern states starting in New York and ending in North Dakota. Along the way it passes through Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. This is from the trail as it traverses through the Brule River State Forest on a section between the St. Croix River and Brule River watersheds.

Brule River State Forest is part of the Wisconsin State Park system. There is a fee system to enjoy all of these parks. For more information on the fees click here.


The goal of Traveling Ted is to inspire people to outdoor adventure travel and then provide tips on where and how to go.
