Berries are in perfect harvest stage fore picking along the Gunflint trail just out side of Grand Marais. My wife Gracie and I were hiking to the Magnetic rock about 30 miles North West of Grand Marais when we noticed a bountiful view of Raspberries and then noticed people off of to the side of the path picking Blueberries by the bucketful, this trail walks through the BWCA burnout area and is just now coming back to life with new ground growth with pine, birch and aspen trees and lots of berries of every kind.
Most of the berries along the trail are ripe and ready for picking, we still found many berries at various young and mature stages.
Bring containers, we were limited to our camel back water bottle we use for hiking.
Don’t delay, berries wait for no one. When they are ready they are either picked or drop to the ground.
