Donald D. Ferguson Demonstration Forest

Drummond Grade
Two Harbors, MN 55616


We invite you to step into the Donald D. Ferguson Demonstration Forest. The 400 forested acres of this woodland are a melding of the past and present. In the late 1800s two railroads – the Duluth and Iron Range and the Duluth and Northern Minnesota – hauled their loads of ore and timber from this land. Now in the 21st century, these multiple-use forest lands are valued for wood fiber and lumber; habitat for wildlife; and for cultural, aesthetic, and recreational values they provide to the citizens of Minnesota and visitors to the area.

The Demonstration Forest trails are available for hiking and biking in the summer. There is a spur of the Superior Hiking Trail connected to the Demonstration Forest. The trails can also be used in the winter for cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and fatbiking. The North Shore Snowmobile Trail goes through the Demonstration Forest. According to there are currently four caches in the Demonstration Forest. There are restrooms, a shelter and an information kiosk located near the parking area.
