Magnetic Rock Trail is a 2.5 mile out and back trail located near Grand Marais, MN. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for hiking.
Delicious blueberries, a babbling brook, some beautiful nature and a giant rock that will mess with your compass. Can't ask for more than that out of less than a 3 mile round trip hike!
Easy, quick hike, interesting topography through an area burned by recent forest fires. The views, magnetic rock and wild blue berries (at the right time) make it worthwhile.
This is an amazing Minnesota hike. Probably the only thing it's missing is a good climb. The landscape is amazing and there are exceptional views on every step. Not too strenuous either. Well worth the travel up the trail.
One of my top five Minnesota hikes
