Last year Jens, Jonell and I made a trip up here. A few weeks later, Jon, Jake and I went to Copper Harbor for some mountain biking. We chose to return to Grand Marais for the style of trails and the town of Grand Marais. There were a few new trails since we were there last year. The trails are a mix of machine and hand built. Fast flowing but rock gardens scattered throughout that challenge all aspects of ones skill set. As far as flow trails go, the riding at Pincushion feels more natural, not predictable and truly contour.
Nothing better than riding with your kids.
Hughie's Tacos a must stop in Grand Marais.
Top of state trail that heads back to Grand Marais. Had to stop and tell the boys the story of racing back in 91 and 92, the first years of the Sawtooth Challenge. It was always super muddy and the descent was always dicey. Especially with rigid bikes.
