The woods called us away from Lake Superior last week, as we spent a few restful days at Lutsen. While our condo looked out at the crashing waves, which hypnotized us, we couldn't ignore the Superior Hiking Trail up in the hills.
“A trail eases our way, but it also narrows your focus,” Paul Gruchow.
The 64-mile Border Route Trail can be merciless with its steep grades, thick forests and rocky trails.
It can also be the most beautiful trail you’ll ever hike. Nestled between the Canadian border and the Gunflint Trail, it offers with majestic views of Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, with lots of plant and wildlife.
