Grand Marais, United States

Hike to the Magnetic Rock

3 Miles Total - 130 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by The Outbound Collective

Hike through a former burn area in Superior National Forest to this mysterious and large magnetic rock (30' tall). Enjoy wildflowers in spring and blueberries in summer.

Branching off of Gunflint Trail, Magnetic Rock Trail first passes through a regenerating forest, a result of past fires, where there are young pines as well as wild blueberries in the summer. The rock itself, measuring 30 feet high, is a fun attraction (literally) – bring a compass or magnet to detect its magnetic properties.
