We arrived at Log Slide Overlook at about 9:00 in the morning and we were one of two couples there. The other couple left after a few minutes, so we had the place to ourselves. The views are beautiful. We decided to head down to the bottom to check out the beach area and then hike back up. When we... More

If you didn't know any better you would think you're in the Caribbean. The water is so clear and clean. It was just so peaceful out there. The photo opportunities are endless. The bugs are still bad. The biting flies are immune to deet so long sleeves and pants are helpful. There is also a warning about climbing down for... More

If you need to get rid of some extra energy take a ride Dow the sand dune and run back up. Interesting history for those into local history

You must stop by here if you're in the area. The view is just beautiful... dunes to the right, lighthouse to the left and Lake Superior as far as you can see!! I didn't make the trek down the dune, instead I took the opportunity to take pictures of my family members that did. They are in good shape and... More

Is a short hike from the parking lot. The views are breathtaking. There is a huge sandhill you can walk down and hike up, but as a warning it can take only seconds to get to the bottom and may take about 30-45min to hike back up. With that said it is a MUST see if you are in the... More

Only minutes from Grand Marais, it provides excellent views of Lake Superior and the large sand dunes that border the shore. Great photo opportunities from the observation deck.

Definitely worth the stop for this beautiful view. Just a short walk from the parking area to the dune and overlook.

This is a short hike to see great views of Lake Superior and also the large sand dunes lining the shore. Worth the hike.

Unbelievable views. One of the best ways to appreciate the majesty of Lake Superior is from the height of the log slide. The sand dunes are not easy to walk on, but definitely worth the effort. It's hard to believe that some folks actually descend all the way to the beach; even more amazing to get back up. That trip... More
