The Scenic Byway Experience

Gunflint Trail Scenic Byway

The Gunflint Trail is a remote wilderness road that winds through a thick, undeveloped boreal forest of pine, aspen, birch and rare maple stands. Created by the force of ancient glaciers, the Gunflint's wilderness lakes are peaceful, pristine, and offer ample opportunities for wildlife viewing. Look for moose, deer, loons and many other species of flora and fauna. The gunflint borders the famous Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, known for excellent fishing and unforgettable scenery. Hiking trails that spur from the main road lead to serene northwoods lakes and popular destinations like Eagle Mountain, the highest point in the state. Depart on your journey along the Gunflint from the picturesque harbor town of Grand Marais, a quaint and friendly community built on the beautiful shore of Lake Superior.
