Things To Do

The Gunflint Trail is so much more than a 57-mile paved national scenic byway. Once upon a time, the Gunflint Trail was a primitive trail used to move goods on foot or via dogsled to the port of Grand Marais on Lake Superior for trade. Today, it’s a literal gateway to one of the last truly wild areas of the country, the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW). Along the way to the wild, you’ll find lodges, outfitters, local shops and restaurants and kind, adventurous folks willing to help you find great trails, amazing fishing spots or favorite places to stop and enjoy a little time with Mother Nature.
