Roundtrip: 1 km
Location: Grand Marais, MN
“Artist’s Point” is the name of a small peninsula that forms the double harbour in the town of Grand Marais. This is a must-do whenever you are in Grand Marais — and in my opinion the windier the day the better!
Check out the shoreline rocks beneath the break-wall and see if you can find names of visitors dating back to 1892! You can walk along the cement pier out to the Grand Marais lighthouse.
Coming from the border crossing, at the one and only stoplight- turn left (toward the lake) onto Broadway Avenue and keep going until you reach a large parking lot. Park and walk past the Coast Guard buildings to the trail on the left. You will see the sign for Artist’s Point at the start of the trail.
