“Worth the climb”

Pincushion Mountain Trail System
Reviewed 30 October 2013

We descended and climbed out of Devil's Track Gorge and went on to the Pincushion Mountain summit. We walked down to a rock outcropping which overlooked Lake Superior. The views were stupendous! It was a beautiful day - blue, blue sky - making it well worth the climb.

We hiked up to the top for the wonderful view overlooking Lake Superior. The trail going up was soggy and boring about 45 minutes each way.

I am no longer able to walk trails, but the short drive off the Gunflint Trail (Cook County # 12) brought us to a trailhead/lookout parking area. All I coudl say was WOW!

The view overlooking Grand Marais and Lake Superior virtually takes your breath away. That view, by the way, is even more stunning at daybreak and at dusk. Make ure you have your camera ready.

Pick your activity any time of year... you can do it all at Pincushion. And a great overlook and view of Grand Marais and Lake Superior. Worth a few minutes or all day.
