July 4 – Race-day registration is open from 0745-0900 at Birch Grove School in Tofte. Cost is $35/person

This annual 10 KM Trail Run on the monring of July 4th is a favorite of locals and visitors alike. The run starts and finishes at the Birch Grove School on the west side of Tofte. Bring your old running shoes…..it can be very wet and muddy! The morning starts with kid’s short children’s “sprint” races (by age), then a youth Mile Run followed by the pack of runners (and walkers). Music, food, prizes and a good work-out! This is a fund-raiser by the Sugarbush Trail Association for maintenance and upkeep of the xc-ski and singletrack trails.

Sail on the Hjørdis
Sail on the Hjørdis

North House Folk School | Grand Marais MN

The flagship of the Grand Marais Harbor, Hjørdis shares the name of the mythical Norse goddess of war. Take a trip on this 50’ traditionally-rigged steel schooner and gain access to both the largest lake in the world and experience Grand Marais as it was approached in the centuries before Highway 61 — from the water.

The 2019 sailing season has begun! Even better than watching her from the shore is spending time aboard out on the water

Try the 2-Hour Daily Sail, or Friday and Saturday Sunset Sail!
