    Breath taking and remote beauty.

    by charlesracine Updated Oct 21, 2010

    Hike the Grand Portage trail north to the Canadian/US border. The deep canyon view is breathtakingly beautiful. It is a long hike but it is well worth it once in one's lifetime. You can start at the Grand portage Monument or take a back road to roughly cut the distance in half. The Voyagers made this hike fully loaded with goods on their backs. If you hike it you will likely not see anyone except from your own group.

    Ojibwe Indians, French and English fur traders flourished here. From 1778 until 1802, welcomed by the Grand Portage Ojibwe, the North West Company located their headquarters and western supply depot here, at the Grand Portage Monument on Lake Superior for business and the summer rendezvous.
