Entry Point 21 - Angleworm Lake Trail

Kawishiwi Ranger District

Take Highway 116 (the Echo Trail) from Ely, Minnesota to the Angleworm Lake/Angleworm Lake Trail parking lot. This is 17 miles from Ely, so set your odometer.

This is a shared parking lot. Entry Point 21 - Angleworm Trail and Entry Point 20 - Angleworm Lake both use this parking lot.

There is a primitive restroom at this entry point (just like you will find at campsites out in the BWCA). The entry point sees relatively low traffic. It is shared by both hikers and paddlers.

It is 716 rods from the parking lot to Angleworm Lake. This is almost two miles. The Angleworm Lake Trail follows the same route as the portage until it reaches Angleworm Lake. The trail is easy to follow and in good shape. It is also flat in most places with a few minor hills to go up and down. There is a marshy area where the trail crosses Spring Creek, but this has been mitigated with a dual plank wooden crosswalk.
