The Forest Service marker calls this Northern Light Lake overlook trail. good parking at the trail head. The trail is well maintained and lightly used. We are 67 but experienced hikers and would rate this hard but worth the trek. Some rocks and roots but trail is clear. there are several spots with views of the Northern Lights lake and nearby lakes.
Nice hike. The only negative was the sound of traffic on Gunflint Trail, this time if year as people head in to BWCA.
