Laurentian Divide Scenic Overlook on the Gunflint Trail

Natural Area, Geologic Feature
Mary Somnis

The granite cliffs you’ll see while traveling the Gunflint Trail Scenic Byway are part of the Laurentian Divide. Waters on the north side of the divide flow north to Hudson Bay and the Arctic Ocean; waters on the south side flow southeast to Lake Superior, then on the Atlantic Ocean. Be sure to stop at the Laurentian Divide Scenic Overlook (Birch Lake).
