north shore trail, activity and general maps

for places along minnesota’s north shore of lake superior

Do you like a good visual? Want a map to show you the lay of the land? We’ve got that for you. We have maps for hiking, biking, climbing, camping, the Superior Hiking Trail, the Gitchi-Gami State trail [paved], cross-country skiing, alpine skiing and snowboarding, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and fat bike trails. Plus a full map of the image above, from Duluth to the Canadian border.

From Duluth’s Canal Park, northeast for 154 miles to Grand Portage and the border with Canada, this singular drive is a voyage through some of America’s most unspoiled lands. Your route offers breathtaking views, endless opportunities to enjoy nature, historic sites, attractions, parks, and villages with events, shopping, lodging, dining, and local culture.

The path hugs the water’s edge along the inland coast of the world’s largest freshwater lake, bisecting the shore and the ancient inland rock formations and wooded hills rising above the coast. The North Shore Scenic Drive was recognized for the outstanding scenic and recreational opportunities it provides along the touted North Shore of Lake Superior and was designated as an All-American Road, Minnesota’s only such designation.

Here it is – an easy way to find every type of North Shore map we offer. Maps are listed mile-by-mile southwest [Duluth] to northeast [Canada]. Choose by activity and by location.

Watch for varying speed limits along Highway 61 – it varies from 55 mph to 65 mph plus slow areas outside of towns and state parks
