Gunflint Trail Fire Dept.


Serving the Gunflint Trail Community since 1992.

The Gunflint Trail is a two-lane asphalt road originating in Grand Marais, Minnesota, and ending at Gull Lake, Minnesota. It is the only access to this major outdoor year-round wilderness recreation area.

The Fire District includes over 700 private and commercial property parcels and is surrounded by the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and Superior National Forest. The main economic activity in this area is the resort and outfitting business, which attracts many overnight tourists throughout the year. Since 1992, the fire department has been responding to structure and wildland fires, medical emergencies, and search and rescue.
