|The historic Gunflint Trail, winds 63 scenic miles
north, along the Superior National Forest and the Boundary Waters Canoe Area
Wilderness (BWCAW). The Trail begins 275 miles north of Minneapolis in the
harbor town of Grand Marais, and extends northwest, ending at Saganaga Lake,
bordering Canada. In the 1800's the trail was home to Indian
communities, the mining town of Gunflint, and the village of La
Blaine. Remnants of the old "ghost towns" and mines can
still be found amongst this beautiful resort area, now known for its crystal
clear lakes, wildlife, wildflowers, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, bird watching,
berry picking, fall colors, dog sledding, and cross country skiing.
Come and explore the Gunflint and stay with one of these fine resorts,
lodges, cabins, and bed & breakfasts.|
