Activities & Attractions
Plan your visit
World Class Single-Track trails, from beginner to expert
In its heyday in the late 1950’s Tioga No. 2 Mine shipped more than 3 million tons of iron ore. Tioga’s mining days are long over, but the steep slopes and rocky outcroppings laid the groundwork for world-class mountain biking.
SUP & Kayaking
HUNDREDS OF MILES OF EPIC WATERWAYS
With two beaches and multiple access points for watercraft, Tioga is your gateway to paddling the North. Glide across the turquoise blue waters of Tioga Mine Pit or pack your seal bag and put in on Lake Pokegema for the day.
Snowshoeing & Fat biking
Your winter sports destination
Experience the beauty and exhilaration that winter brings in Minnesota. The Cohasset region averages over 45 inches of snowfall per year and a solid base of snow is maintained on Tioga’s trails for snowshoeing and fat-tire biking throughout the season.
