How about a great ride?
The Gitchi-Gami State Trail is being developed in sections, and already segments at Split Rock River, Temperance River State Park and Silver Creek Cliff are in use. One Grand Marais portion is complete, beginning at Co. Rd. 13, about two miles west of town. The Gitchi-Gami Trail is a great option for families to bike together, and the vistas of Lake Superior are stunning. When the whole trail is complete, it will connect five state parks, four scientific natural areas, many historic sites and several communities. You can track the progress of the trail at Gitch-Gami Trail and start a new tradition for your North Shore visits.
