Foundation's 2nd Annual Taste of the Trail Picnic Adventure Sunday - Tickets Sales Now Open

Sunday, June 26

COOK COUNTY, MINNESOTA  ~~~~~~  June 9, 2022 (LSNews)  The North Shore Health Care Foundation (NSHCF) will be hosting the 2nd Annual Taste of the Trail Picnic Adventure in support of its Justine Kerfoot Memorial Endowment Fund, on Sunday, June 26. The event is a culinary scavenger hunt of sorts, starting in Grand Marais and making your way up the legendary Gunflint Trail collecting courses at iconic Trail venues, ending at the Gunflint Lodge to collect your main course.

This is such a fun and unique Cook County experience and an easy way to support a variety of health and emergency services programs locally. We encourage participants to make a day of it, explore various areas along the way. People can eat their courses whenever they like, maybe each one in a different beautiful location or stay at our generous partner venues and enjoy refreshments before moving on, save them all to bring home as takeout or enjoy them on the patio of the gorgeous Gunflint Lodge at the end of the adventure. It’s a flexible event that supports our mission and vision to achieve a healthy community for all in Cook County.

We heard such positive feedback from participants last year at the first event asking to keep doing it this way, so we are excited for the second time around! We are so grateful to our generous sponsors for partnering in this event to support health and emergency services in Cook County. It’s also a way to incorporate Trail history. The culinary adventure starts with a fresh course already packed in your picnic bag from the Fisherman’s Daughter & Dockside Fish Market, who was the anchor of the old Gunflint Trail, then on to Trail Center, the Poplar Haus and ending at the Gunflint Lodge. It’s a fantastic way to get out and explore this part of the county for a great cause.

Tickets are $75/person or $125/couple and will be on sale until June 22. Ticket sales are now live at or by calling the NSHCF office at 218-387-9076. The event also includes prize draws.

Volunteers are needed for this event to staff each of the tour stops or at the starting line. If you can spare a few hours between 11:30 – 5 pm, please consider helping out! To volunteer, contact the Foundation at [email protected] or call 218-387-9076.

We hope to see you there!
