Vermilion Gorge

Vermilion Gorge FEATURES

Hike the Historic Gorge… track wildlife… listen to loons… watch eagles.

One of the most picturesque areas of Crane Lake is the Vermilion Gorge. The trail can be picked up just around the point from the Lodge.

There is a nice picnic area located at the mouth of the gorge. Let us know if you would like to use our shore lunch kit for an afternoon picnic.

The 3 mile Vermilion Gorge Trail, at a leisurely pace, can be easily hiked in 3 hours. The last portion of the trail parallels the Gorge – a rugged landscape of sheer granite cliffs and rock outcrops. As you begin this portion of the trail, notice the change in vegetation. The ground is covered with a soft, green moss carpet sprinkled with spearmint plants to enhance the beauty of this majestic, scenic wonder.

A breathtaking adventure you must experience.
