  • A Shack on Horseshoe Lake near Pine River, MN | Pine River, MN 56474



Back to the Shack
It's the annual ride up to the serene land on Horseshoe Lake near Pine River, MN. Explore the roads that wind around the lakes and Jack pines of the north, returning to the shack for some R&R, grillin' and chillin' and b.s.in' around the bonfire. Take in the complimentary north woods ambiance of fresh air, loons, beavers, eagles, bullfrogs and other wildlife.

Whatever motorcycle you ride, dual sport, adventure tourer or road bike, there are plenty of trails and roads to explore. The Shack is near the central part of the TMAT route (Trans Minnesota Adventure Tour) and there are plenty of state land with trails and old logging roads for the adventurist.

More details will be posted as they develop.

Camping and Lodging
Bring your camping gear and find a spot near the shack.  If you're not into camping, lodging can be found in the town of Pine River, MN.
