Grand Marais, Minnesota

Catch a Sunset at Honeymoon Bluff

0.5 Miles Total - 128 ft gain - Loop Trail

Originally added by Allison Herreid

Short hike to a beautiful view overlooking Hungry Jack and Bearskin Lakes. 

Getting to the trailhead:
The trailhead for the Honeymoon Bluff trail is just off of Co 66 (Clearwater Rd) which is 30 miles up the Gunflint Trail. From Grand Marais, turn north on the Gunflint Trail (Co Rd 12) and go about 27 miles until you reach Co 66. Turn right and continue for 3.25 miles to reach the small parking lot off the left side of the road. The parking lot is right after you go past the turn off for the Flour Lake Campground.

The hike:
The hike is a very short loop, but is relatively steep for the first half. There is a stairway climb for the first part of the hike until you reach the T of the loop. Continue right until you reach the overlook area. There are a number of great locations along this overlook to capture some nice sunset shots (all facing west)! The overlook provides spectacular views of two lakes surrounded by boreal forest.
