See really old virgin white pine at George Washington Pines. You can drive right by along the Gunflint Trail, or take advantage of the flat trail through cedar stands, near the shores of the Elbow River, and under gorgeous pines. Ideal for anyone who wants Grand Marais hiking – 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.
