5/9/07 – We have been getting quite a few calls and emails about the status of the fire at the end of the Gunflint Trail. It is highly unlikely that the fire will impact any of the routes in the Sawbill area. If there is any change, or if any new fires start, we’ll post the news here immediately. – Bill
