This route is very easy to find and follow. Start your route in the town of Ely, MN and simply head south on Hwy 1 all the way to the route's end point of Illgen City, MN.
This is Northern Minnesota at its finest! Entire length of run is within the Superior National Forest. You'll see most of the best scenery at the end of the route once you reach the north shore of Lake Superior.
Smooth blacktop for entire run, good twisties ... just watch out for the autos and most corners are heavily wooded and no way to see what is ahead of you.
Nothing around ... just you and nature. For something to do just head south. Once you hit Illgen, you will slowly get back to civilization.
