Northern Comfort B&B is located in a pocket of Minnesota that is packed full of hiking trails perfect for all ranges of skill — from beginner to advanced. We were struck by the beautiful photos our neighbor, Sarah, took of local trail, Kawishiwi Falls this weekend and asked her if we could share them on our website.

As Sarah said, the trail looks like a scene from a fairy tale!

The Kawishiwi Trail is about five miles north of Ely. Trail access is just off a public parking area and the 1.5-mile loop is part of the portage between Fall and Garden Lakes. This is an easy trail to hike with a fair even grade. We’ll be bringing Peppermint out with us to explore on our next sunny day for sure! 

Hikers can also explore these trails near Ely (30-45 minute drive from the B&B), Bearhead Lake State Park (40-minute drive from the B&B), the Lake Vermillion-Soudan Underground Mine State Park or nearby Heritage Trail just a mile down the road from Northern Comfort!

In the meantime, enjoy these lovely pictures of the Kawishiwi Trail and let us know how we can help you plan your next trip to Northern Comfort.
