Minnesota Superior Coast – October 2021


given the sheer distance to Grand Marais MN/Lutsen MN area, this may need to be a longer trip with a short stopoff in Grand View…maybe two/three nights in Grand View for football, and then a trip up to Grand Marais for an additional week for MN trails below, plus scenic drives

MN Hiking Trails
