Nature Center

The Chik-Wauk Nature Center covers 50 acres surrounding a bay of Saganaga Lake. The nature center boasts picnic areas, overlooks, and several interpretive hiking trails, including an ADA trail. The trails provide insight into the history and ecology of the Gunflint Trail, including a first-hand glimpse of wildfire regeneration from the Ham Lake Wildfire, which burned through a portion of Chik-Wauk’s property in May 2007.
