Entry Point 82 - Border Route Trail (Center) and Caribou Rock Trailhead

Gunflint Ranger District

From Grand Marais, Minnesota, follow the Gunflint Trail for about 29 miles to Hungry Jack Road (just before Trail Center). Take a right and drive 1.9 miles to the small parking lot on your right. The trail starts across the road.

The Caribou Rock Trail is an access trail to the Border Route Trail. The Caribou Rock Trail is about 8.4 miles out-and-back. About 3/4 mile in from the trailhead, there is a fine view of West Bearskin Lake. About a mile further on is a view of Moss Lake. The Caribou Rock Trail ends at Rose Lake and Rose Falls. You will also find the Stairway Portage here between Rose Lake and Duncan Lake.

The Caribou Rock Trail intersects the Border Route Trail just before reaching Rose Lake.
