The Gunflint Trail traces its origins back to the days of Native American fur traders and early European settlers. Today, it provides access to a world of adventure and exploration. As you venture along this winding road, you'll be immersed in a landscape of towering pines, shimmering lakes, and abundant wildlife. 

This historic trail offers a gateway to the pristine beauty of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) and serves as a haven for outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers. The BWCAW, a million-acre wilderness area, offers a vast network of interconnected lakes and rivers that beg to be explored by canoe or kayak. Paddle across serene waters, traverse portages, and camp under the starlit sky, experiencing the serenity and solitude of this pristine wilderness.

Hiking trails along the Gunflint Trail lead adventurers through ancient forests, where moose, deer, and other wildlife roam freely. Embark on a scenic trek to overlooks that offer breathtaking views of the surrounding wilderness. In winter, the trail transforms into a snowy wonderland, perfect for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and dog sledding.
