Enjoyed a visit to this National Forest. Didn’t have the opportunity to hike but enjoyed the top notch visitor’s center (and NP passport stamp!) and boat ride on Portage Lake to view Portage Glacier up close. Highly recommend!

There's a small booklet available at the tourist office downtown and most grocery stores with a list of all the (official) trails and facts about them, estimate of difficulty, vertical distance, etc. The gamut spans flat and paved to mountain peaks.
One of the first ones I'd recommend is Flat Top. It's very popular, and has a fantastic views on a clear day.
