Aid station directions
We are no longer allowing spectators at aid stations 1, 2 and 3 for the 99ers.

Directions to Devil Track Lake Campground (you will still see your riders two times):
• From Lutsen — go Northeast on Scenic Hwy 61 to the Harbor Town of Grand Marais
• Take a left on 5th Street — 5th is located at the bottom of the hill as you enter Grand Marais
• Proceed up 5th to the Gunflint Trail (less than a mile)
• Take a left on The Gunflint Trail and follow that up the meandering hill to County Road #8 (3+/- miles)
• Take a left on County Road #8 — there will be also a sign for the Cook County/Grand Marais airport
• Follow #8 to Devil Track Lake and continue on #8 past the airport
• County #8 turns into County #57 (basically stay on the same road)

Directions for the return back to the Sawbill Checkpoint/aid station #5 mile 80:
• Double back a couple miles on #57 to Ball Club Lake Road. This is a gravel road that will also take you to Two Island Campground — about 5 miles
• Continue past Two Island Campground (less than a mile) to “The Grade” or FSR 170
• Go 15+ miles to the Sawbill Trail (just continue on the Grade until you hit Sawbill Trail — this will be a “T” in the road)
• Take a left on Sawbill and proceed down to the checkpoint/aid station 5+/- miles
