Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: The official information center for the communities of Lutsen - Tofte - Schroeder, Grand Marais, Gunflint Trail, and Grand Portage. Here in the tip of Minnesota's Arrowhead, amidst the north shore of Lake Superior and the pristine Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW), you can go bigger, play harder and relax better than anywhere else in the Midwest. Life is bigger here in Cook County, MN along legendary Highway 61.
Useful Information: Bathroom facilities, Wheelchair access

The Gunflint Trail is a nice leisure highway drive past lakes, pines and wildlife. We saw 2 beaver, 2 moose, deer and red fox. Be sure to travel this road at dawn or dusk for best wildlife viewing. And don't go too fast, we had a moose run out in front of us! I would have enjoyed staying at one of the lodges along the trail for some outdoor recreation.
