Caribou Rock Trail

gunflint mile 30.2

 

Length: 1.5 - 7 miles
Difficulty: easy/moderate due to incline to difficult due to length
 
Three overlooks and a waterfall! Go for a short ascent over about 0.7 miles to Caribou Rock, an overlook of Bearskin Lake; another mile in is the overlook of Moss Lake. The entire trail (7-mile round trip) leads to the Duncan Lake Overlook and continues high above the lake to the Rose Falls and Stairway Portage where it intersects with the east-west 65-mile Border Route Trail; plan on 5 hours plus lunch near the waterfalls at Stairway Portage.
