“Good Morning Hike”

Pincushion Mountain Trail System
Reviewed July 23, 2013

We started out right away in the morning and spent a few hours hiking up to the Pincushion Mtn. Overlook. It was a beautiful hike with well maintained trails. It was a bit wet due to heavy (5") downpour a few nights before and little confusing on where the trail started. If you just go due north you will get to an open clearing and on the other side the trails will start. Hiking all the way out on the overlook is the way to go because then you get the best views of the lake, Grand Marias, and the woods.

Beautiful area. We went up there to snowshoe and enjoyed the afternoon. A great area for crosscountry skiing too.

I was able to visit Pincushion Mountain just before sunset. I had the opportunity to do a plein air watercolor of the beautiful view of Grand Marais and the harbor.

Not a spot of trash to be seen. Views of Lake Superior were incredible. It would have been nice to have the maps along the route more clearly marked. But not like you'd get lost just so you know how far you are going.

Most areas are easy hiking and the views of Grand Marais and Lake Superior are incredible. You can reach the trails right outside of Grand Marais on the Gunflint. Very easy to get to.
