Description 

Wind your way through 57 miles of beautiful boreal forests, past glacial Gunflint Trail lakes, and through outdoor splendor where the only human habitation takes place at camp sites.(taken from gunflint site)

There is plenty of undiscovered climbing here. The ecosystem is very void of human contact(like many climbing areas). Please respect the environment when scouting new terrain. Happy exploring!


Getting There 

Hwy 61 to Grand Marais, MN. Then turn North onto the Gunflint Trail. All the established hiking is well posted and maps are available everywhere.

Climbing Season
