For those that want to start at the Lake Superior State Forest Campground as a trail head, travel on H58 east from Grand Marais, past Old Seney Road and the School Forest for a total of 12.2 miles to the Lake Superior State Forest Campground. If you are riding your bike from town, travel on H58 east and instead of riding all the way to Lake Superior State Forest Campground, go east only six miles and look for the bridge going over the Sucker River. If you continue on H58 where it turns to gravel, you went too far. Turn south (right) onto county road 416 and follow the orange diamonds marking the snowmobile trail up Pull-Up Hill. Continue on 416 for eight miles. The trail bends down along the south bluff overlooking the Blind Sucker Flooding to head east. When you reach a 3-way intersection,you can try a challenging spur by turning north (right) and ride down the bluff 3/10 of a mile to enjoy a beautiful spot next to the Blind Sucker Flooding. Make sure you are ready to climb back up a tough hill. From the original approach direction, the fork that goes straight continues you on Trail 6 (country road 416). If you take the right (south) turn following the orange and white arrow, you will change onto Trail 7. Once you continue on 416 going around the Blind Sucker Flooding, keep riding for 2.7 miles until you reach the end where the road forms a t-intersection with 433. This stretch of very old logging road is narrow and quite rough with downed trees and severe ruts, so be careful. Turn north (left) on county road 433 and enjoy the ride down hill for 11/2 miles. Go past the Blind Sucker Flooding Campground #2, and county road 407. Once past 407, the road turns into H58. Continue down H58 riding north a half mile until the road makes a left turn at the lakeshore. If the weather permits, and if you're brave, you may want to take a dip to refresh yourself in Lake Superior. This section of beach, called Perry's Landing, is also a great place to agate hunt.
To get back to the Lake Superior Forest Campground, ride a little more than a half mile west on H58. Continue 12.2 miles west on H58 to return to town.
How to get there:
From the south part of the state, head north on I-75 to either Hwy 2 or Hwy 28. Then head west to Hwy 77 when you'll turn north to Grand Marais and the Pictured Rocks area.
