Gunflint Trail Scenic Byway Survey
It’s been a few years since I was on the Gunflint Trail Scenic Byway Committee but that doesn’t mean other people haven’t been working diligently this entire time. A big thank you to the folks who are continually working on making the Gunflint Trail Corridor an even more special place. To thank them for their hard work you can participate in the survey they are asking you to complete so they can keep up their wonderful work.

Participation Requested in the Gunflint Trail Scenic Byway Survey
(Grand Marais, MN) The Gunflint Trail Scenic Byway Committee, a sub-committee of the Gunflint Trail Association, is working on an update of the Gunflint Trail National Scenic Byway Corridor Management Plan (CMP). The purpose of the update will be to acknowledge changes that have occurred since the 2008 plan such as the Gunflint Trail Scenic Byway’s designation as a National Scenic Byway and also to evaluate the progress of goals and strategies identified in the previous plan.
Public input is being requested through participation in the Gunflint Trail Scenic Byway Survey, which asks participants for their input on aspects of the Corridor Management Plan, specifically what they feel are the strengths, weakness, and opportunities of the Gunflint Trail. The survey will be distributed to members of the Gunflint Trail community and will also be made available at http://www.visitcookcounty.com/communities/gunflint-trail/. The survey will be open through October 23rd.
The Survey was prepared by the Arrowhead Regional Development Commission (ARDC) on behalf of the Gunflint Trail Scenic Byway Committee. Results will be collected by ARDC and analyzed by the Gunflint Trail Scenic Byway Committee and included in the Corridor Management Plan update.
The mission of the Gunflint Trail Scenic Byway Committee is to act as advocates and stewards for the preservation, protection, understanding, and maintenance of the natural historic intrinsic values of the Gunflint Trail (Cook County Road #12) and its corridor. The goal of the Gunflint Trail Scenic Byway Committee is to work with all stakeholders to understand and retain the intrinsic values of the Gunflint Trail corridor for all those who work, live, recreate, and value the area.
