AAA Editor Notes
Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center is 55 mi. n.w. via CR 12 (Gunflint Tr.) to 28 Moose Pond Dr. Housed in the historic Chik-Wauk Lodge, built in 1934, the museum educates visitors about the geology, flora and fauna of northeastern Minnesota. Interactive displays and exhibits depict how prehistoric peoples, Native Americans, French-Canadian voyageurs, miners and loggers lived in this rugged wilderness of dense forests, sheer cliffs and island-studded lakes.
Five hiking trails ranging from easy to difficult traverse the nature center grounds. A day trip is a great way to experience the natural beauty of the Gunflint Trail region, Superior National Forest and the Boundary Waters without investing an undue amount of time and effort.
Picnicking is permitted.
