Gunflint Trail Scenic Byway

Posted by MNAngler On August - 19 - 2010

If you’ve read any of my blog from last summer, you know that I spend a decent amount of time on the Gunflint Trail in Northern Minnesota. I found out this Spring that on October 16, 2009, the Gunflint Trail was named a National Scenic Byway by the Department of Transportation.

Highway 61 on the North Shore, which runs from Duluth to the Canadian border is part of our drive to get to the Gunflint Trail. We take it from Duluth to Grand Marais and head up the Gunflint Trail from there. It turns out that that stretch of road is also a National Scenic Byway known as the North Shore Scenic Drive.

Both roads are beautiful drives and I encourage you to spend some time on them if you ever come and visit Minnesota. Then stop in at one of the multitude of lakes you’ll encounter on the Gunflint Trail, catch some fish, and email me where you caught them and with what.
