FALL COLORS BEGINNING ALONG THE TRAIL

Gunflint Trail- The fall season colors are just beginning to get underway along the Gunflint. The moose maple and some of the aspen and birch are starting to turn. Peak color season should arrive sometime within the next couple of weeks.

INN TO INN FALL COLORS TOUR - ELY TO THE GUNLINT AROUND THE EDGE OF THE BWCA WILDERNESS

Grand Marais, MN- Scenic Fall Drive Around the BWCA--Ely to the Gunflint Trail by "the secret backroads" with two B & B's as Bookends-- Spend two nights at Ely's Blue Heron Bed and Breakfast, located on South Farm Lake at the Western Gateway to the Boundary Waters. Then drive from Ely to the Gunflint Trail's Poplar Creek Guesthouse B& B along the southern border of the BWCA via the scenic backroads. Picnic beside a remote picturesque lake or creek enroute. The leaf color season runs from mid September through mid October, but varies in timing in different areas of the forest and along Lake Superior. The autumn Boundary Waters colors are spectacular!

Halfway between Ely and the Gunflint you can take-in one of Minnesota's must remote taverns- the Trestle Inn.

According to Poplar Creek Guesthouse owner, Barbara Young, "In the fall when we can get away from our B&B we often travel these back roads ourselves. These roads are known by the 'locals' but traveled by few others. The fall colors along these roads are truly beautiful. With this program we hope to share this beauty with others."

Josie Milan, co-manager of the Blue Heron, states that she is "Very excited about the edge of the Boundary Waters tour. In fact," she continues, "I took this back roads trip from Ely to the Gunflint myself a few years ago and it is truly beautiful.

Inn to Inn Ely to the Gunflint fall tours can be scheduled by simply making one phone call to either the Blue Heron at 218-365-4720 or Poplar Creek Guesthouse at 800-322-8327.
