Artists' Point

A short walk down Broadway Avenue ends at the Coast Guard parking lot. There you pick up the trail that leads to Artists' Point, one of the most beloved and famous spots in Grand Marais. Your hike to the Point, just ˝ mile, takes you over ancient lava rock and through a small boreal forest. Witness the inspiration for artists, photographers, poets and yes, the rest of us common folk – Artists' Point, overlooking East Bay and Lake Superior. Check out the shoreline rocks beneath the breakwall to find names of visitors dating back to 1892, another unscripted connection that underlines the timelessness of Grand Marais.
