New Zip-Line Adventure Through Minnesota’s North Woods

Towering Pines Zip lineAttention all thrill-seekers: There is a new adventure to be had here in Minnesota’s North Woods. The Towering Pines Canopy Tour is a zip-line adventure hosted out of historic Gunflint Lodge. Located about an hour inland from Grand Marais, Gunflint Lodge overlooks Gunflint Lake as well as numerous other Boundary Waters and Canadian Lakes. The property also boasts many old-growth white pines, some of which are 300 years old. The zip-line trip takes you from platform to platform through these beautiful woods, enjoying amazing views and learning about local natural history from the expert guides.

Trips take 2+ hours and are open to adventurers aged 10 to 99. It makes a great day trip from most of our homes on the North Shore, especially if you have older kids looking for fun activities. More details, along with instructions on making reservations (highly recommended) can be found here.

And here is a link to a fun article in the Star Tribune from a journalist who made one of the first zip line treks.
