There are several Minnesota wilderness hiking trails in the Ely area. The most popular trails include the Bass Lake Trail, the Angleworm Trail, Trezona Trail, Hidden Valley, Secret/Blackstone Trail and the Snowbank Lake Trail.
Bass Lake Trail features 5.6 miles around Bass Lake, with backpacking campsites. Historically and ecologically unique. Requires at least 4-6 hours. We highly recommend a hike to the Dry Falls!
