March 24th, 2006 Grand Portage Trail; about a
foot of snow on roof of shelter.
PARKING SUGGESTION: The
best place to park is at the trailhead at Mineral Center / Trail Center [
black dot on map ] or at
the Lodge / Casino. Take Hwy 61 through Grand Marais 30 miles to County Road
17 to trailhead, or 31 miles from Grand Marais to Lodge / Casino. The trail
leading to / out from the Lodge / Casino is a south facing slope close to
Lake Superior, prone to late season melt. Stay away from the Old Hwy 61
section of County Road 17... this is so rough and full of frost heaves. You
will see a County Road 17 sign about 7 miles before the actual turn onto the
County Road 17 we recommend, this is Old Hwy 61.
