This is an easy hike and then you find the best scenery in Grand Marais. The sunsets during the summer are especially special.

I thought this was an artsy place to shop until we got there and found out it’s more for climbing, walking, and enjoying the scenery!! We loved it. We climbed all over the rocks & took tons of pix. You could spend a couple of hours climbing or just sitting on a rock and watching the waves rol in. We walked to the lighthouse at the other end too. There’s also a rocky beach to enjoy if you like. There is a good-sized parking lot with free parking and there is no cost to visit this place. Highly recommend it!

If you are physically capable of hiking over rocky terrain you must head out here. Follow along the shoreline and the other visitors behind the coast guard station and bear left. Every turn is a another photo op. The trees and the rock formations and the grandness of Lake Superior are all there to absorb in all their glory. Not for young ones I believe. There are some perilous points and some tough rocks to deal with. The views are spectacular though. Watch your step as you click away on your phone cam while walking!

If you're into views - or - if you're into local history - you really should do this short hike. Take time to read the posted board at the entrance to the Point to get an idea of the history and the people involved in the very early days of Grand Marais and the Point. The hike is not arduous (maybe 6-8 minutes to the point if you don't stop to view the scenery) , but it is on uneven surfaces. The right side of the hike will take you on the rocky surfaces next to Lake Superior; the left side of the hike takes you thru the woods with views of the town. We are in our 60's with no medical issues - and did not have any issues with walking on either side. Both end up on Artists Point which gives you a very unique view of the town Grand Marais - not to mention the Lake itself! You get can some great pictures from this point if photography is your thing!

This should be at the top of your list for things to see in Grand Marais. So relaxing and peaceful! No food or drinks by there that you can purchase, restaurants near by. Clean: yes clean area. Different: Some place you never seen before!!!! Seating: no benches to sit on. Wait time: No wait time. Anyone can come and walk around. Length of time spent here: 1/2 hour to 1 hour. Perfect time of day to go: Anytime during the day when it’s not raining. For kids, couples: Not recommended for young kids, unless adult supervision is right next to them. Some areas of walking are VERY narrow and NO guard rails to hold on to. Water is on both sides you could fall into. WATCH your step at all times. Ground can be uneven at certain spots. Easy walking. A few steps here and there, mostly flat. Restrooms: 2 porta potties. Restrooms easy to find: Yes. Parking: Free! A good amount of parking is close to the lake coast. Special shoes/clothes: sneakers is recommended= ground uneven.
