Close to Tofte-Grand Marais in the Superior National Forest, most of the Devils Track Lake mountain bike loop is a trail (25 mi.) and avoids vehicle traffic. A short section is a county road, so watch for traffic. The route passes Devils Track campground with camping facilities, water, outhouses and access to the lake.
To reach the mountain biking trailhead from Grand Marais, take the Gunflint Trail (CR 12) north to County Rd. 8. Go left on 8 and follow it to the USFS Devils Track Campground on Devil Track Rd. (CR 57).
Paved from campground east to fork in road. Gradual incline on state trail from east. North on dirt roads, and hit 3 miles of singletrack which bring you back to campground. (Take clockwise route! Steep 1 mile climb on state trail going counterclockwise!)
Overall, Devils Track Lake is the 6th most popular mountain bike trail of all 31 mountain biking rides in Minnesota. Several of the better mountain bike trails are nearby Devils Track Lake including Beauty Lake Trail, Eliason Tower and Pincushion.
