Field Trip to the End of the Gunflint Trail

Tomorrow is the day when the 7th Grade students from Cook County will visit the end of the Gunflint Trail. They will learn about Fire Wise, find a few geocaches, hike some trails and paddle over to Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center.

We’re hoping for a beautiful day for the kids to enjoy the end of the Gunflint Trail. You would be surprised to know how many people don’t explore all of the ends of our big county but our great local school tries to get the students out there.

They have a Passport Program with various places in our county marked as special destinations. Throughout Grade School and Middle School the students visit the Grand Portage Area near the Canadian Border, the Schroeder Area near the county line and the Gunflint Trail. They explore natural areas like the High Falls at Pigeon River, Cascade River and more and they also visit the Cook County Historical Museum, Commercial Fishing Museum and other informative places.

We are proud to be a part of the program and love to have the students visit us at Voyageur.
