Golden Eagle Lodge offers approximately 6km of designated snowshoe trails, all of which begin right from resort property. All snowshoe trails are pet friendly. Trails vary in difficulty level from easy, to moderate, to strenuous. Snowshoeing is not allowed on ski trails except for the Skijoring Trail, the Flour Lake lake crossing, and the lakefront section of Cabin Loop Trail, which are denoted on the map above.
The Gunflint Trail offers several other snowshoeing opportunities, many of which are hiking trails or portage trails during the summer months. Nearby Honeymoon Bluff is the closest, located only 1 mile from the resort. Try also the Caribou Rock trail, a particularly enjoyable winter trek, as one can simply walk the lakes back to the trailhead to make this normal one-way trail a complete loop. FYI, Rose Lake Falls does still flow in the winter! Further up the Gunflint, both Magnetic Rock and Centennial Trail make for fun snowshoe adventures. The BWCA is easily accessed and snowshoeing the portage trails from lake to lake is also incredibly fun!
A map of Golden Eagle Lodge’s snowshoe trail system is provided to all cabin guests at check-in. Ski passes are not required to use our snowshoe trails. The Central Gunflint Ski Trail Pass is required if you ski any of the ski trails. A Central Gunflint Ski Trail Pass can be purchased at Golden Eagle Lodge or Bearskin Lodge. Ski passes are provided free of charge to registered cabin guests of Golden Eagle Lodge.
