Enjoy tasty berries [in season July and August] and admire Northern Light Lake from atop Blueberry Hill. If you’re heading up the Gunflint Trail for the day, this makes a great leg-stretcher stop [trail is 1 mile total]. This is a short steep hike that includes bedrock, which can be slippery when wet. Add a quick walk down to where the Brule River flows into Northern Light Lake.
From mile marker 109.2 on Hwy 61, turn north on 5th Ave W. for 0.7 miles; turn left on the Gunflint Trail for 12.2 miles to parking area on the east / right.
