North Shore Spring Break Pro-Tip #4:
Hit the Trails

The North Shore of Lake Superior is home to some of Minnesota’s most robust and beautiful trail systems. You could take a Grand Superior vacation twice a year for the rest of your life and not experience them all. We recommend you do that anyway. You’ll be glad you did.

Here are a few of our favorite ways to experience winter on the North Shore.

Cross Country Skiing

Cross Country Skiing is huge this year!

Not only are the trail conditions superb, but we’re finding more and more guests are curious about the experience. For many, their first time on cross country skis is on the north shore. Don’t worry about owning your own gear – rentals are available from our neighbors at j gregors.
