The North Country National Scenic Trail is a premier footpath that one
day will stretch more than 4,000 miles to link communities and wilderness
areas across seven northern states. To the west of Grand Marais, hikers
can enjoy the 43-mile stretch that passes along the shore of Lake Superior
in Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. To the east, the trail stretches 26
miles to the mouth of the Big Two-Heart River. Check out the North
Country Trail website -- it's excellent.
