Near Grand Marais in the Superior National Forest, the Pincushion B&B maintains 25 km of groomed ski trails 1000 feet above Lake Superior on the quiet Sawtooth Mountain ridgeline. The trails are groomed for classic and skate skiing (and to remove the moose tracks).
To reach the cross-country skiing trailhead from Duluth, follow SR61 north towards Grand Marais. Turn west on the Gunflint Trail (CR12) for 3 miles. The Pincushion is on the right.
Overall, Pincushion Mountain B and B is the 13th most popular cross country ski area of all 39 Nordic ski destinations in Minnesota. Several of the better cross country ski trails are nearby Pincushion Mountain B and B including Lutsen Mountains, Gunflint Trail System, Golden Eagle Lodge, Bearskin Lodge, Cascade Lodge and Cascade River State Park.
