Hiking Trails

A variety of hiking trails start right behind the Outfitters taking you to the high cliffs, Lonely Lake, the South Rim, and several scenic overlooks. They are laced through our back basin and vary in length from 1 to 5 miles in length. In addition, there are many other hiking trails just a few miles from the lodge, so we have many days of hiking opportunities for all guests.


We are located adjacent to the famed Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (you can see it across the lake), so you have the choice of several nearby canoe routes to explore and paddle. The choices include everything from short easy paddles to a portage trip deeper into the wilderness. If desired, we pack lunches for your day long trips. Stop up at the Gunflint Northwoods Outfitters located across the road from the lodge to discuss the many different day trip options that are offered.

Horseback Riding

Let our 14 horses help you explore the Superior National Forest from a unique view. Our experienced Wranglers will guide you through the vast miles of trails on steady steeds. Whether you enjoy a scenic ride or a full day adventure, you will be able to capture the essence of a changing forest. Traveling on horseback lets you enjoy the endless beauty while relaxing and basking in the sun on your faithful mount.

A hat, long pants, and closed toed shoes are ideal for comfortable riding.

Our horses summer at Gunflint Lodge and vacation during the winter in Pine River, MN. The season generally runs from May to October, 7 days a week. During the horses’ 6 months vacation, they lack contact with people. Surprising enough, it only takes about 2-5 days for them to readjust to summer work. Many of our 4- legged friends have been with us for over 8 years. Obviously, we do acquire new horses as others move on to retirement. Each year is filled with training and new friendships.  We have a wide variety of horses that range from Quarter Horses to Arabians and everything in between. If you’re a beginner or experienced, we have the horse for you. Our talented wranglers are great at teaming you up with a horse that fits your needs. The many hours spent on the trails together creates a deep bond between wrangler and horse. We invite you to join us for a ride and bond with a horse of your own as you enjoy the marvels that await you around each corner of our beautiful trails.
