Golden-Eagle Lodge and Cabins Gunflint Trail Grand Marais Minnesota Located on the edge of Unspoiled and Unforgettable snowshoeing worlds. A "silent sports only" resort, we offer marked trails surrounding the resort or enter the BWCA in which you blaze your own trail. We are the only Resort and Resident on the lake. Follow the marked "Big Foot Trail" across Flour Lake, through Spruce and Balsam stands, over eskers left by the glaciers and past remnants of an old forest fire. With three-million acres of forest see the tracks of the wild. Guided snowshoe treks are available for the beginners to the advanced. The Lodge offers snowshoe rentals for everyone in the family from the toddlers to the adults. Golden Eagle Lodge is a Tubbs & Red Feather snowshoe dealer and carries a variety in the Lodge store. You can try snowshoes before you buy to see how you like the fastest growing sport around.



Gunflint Lodge Gunflint Trail Grand Marais Minnesota Snowshoeing at Gunflint has evolved from a mode of transportation for the trappers and Indian neighbors to a fun sport for winter visitors. Miles of special snowshoeing trails await you to explore and enjoy. They start right from the back of the dog sled yard and are laced through our back basin. You can often find fresh moose and wolf tracks on the trail in the morning and perhaps catch a glimpse of a white tail deer. Red Feather snowshoes, light and easy to use, are available to rent. This year Gunflint has a special Snowshoers "Dream-Come-True" package which combines accommodations, snowshoes, all meals, two guided treks and lots  of time for your own snowshoeing in the forest. The snowshoeing season runs from early December thru March.



Gunflint Pines Resort Gunflint Trail Grand Marais Minnesota Nestled on a forested hillside on the south shore of Gunflint Lake, which straddles the Canadian border. The snowshoe trails start out climbing a steep ridge, then level out and wind through a mature boreal forest of aspen, spruce, balsam and white pine. A trip to Lookout Point or the High Cliffs, rock outcrops studded with towering white pines, give a view of Gunflint Lake and the forested hills of Canada on the far shore. For the experienced snowshoer, Gunflint Pines is conveniently located on the edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, which holds countless adventures into the wild. Enjoy housekeeping cabins with all the amenities, a warm fire in the fireplace, and from two queen size beds in two bedrooms to seven double beds in four bedrooms.
