George Washington Pines
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. The hike is 2.25 miles total.
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 5.8 miles to parking area on the west / left.
