gunflint trail hike

George Washington Pines

gunflint mile 6.7
Length: 2.25 miles Difficulty: easy


This is a nice level walk through some beautiful cedar stands, near the shores of the Elbow River, and under gorgeous pines. I recommend this trail for anyone who wants to get out into the woods in a safe comfortable way – the trail is easy to get to, well-marked, and pretty. It is an un/sometimes groomed cross-country ski, ski-joring and snowshoe trail in the winter, too. The trail is a short spur into a loop, you choose which direction.
