Written DirectionsVery easy to find and follow this ride. Starting in Duluth (a destination in itself!) and just take US Highway 61 (north) till you get to the US/Canadian border.
SceneryOcean-like views of the "Big Lake", open up from the heavily forested Saw-Tooth Mountains that run along side the shoreline! Work your way up along the spectacular North Shore shoreline, past numerous rivers and waterfalls, state parks and the Superior National Forest! Fantastic!! Too much to detail in this limited space, so suffice it to say this run will blow your doors off (if you had them :-)!! End at the Canadian border! . Lutsen Lodge
Drive EnjoymentUS Highway 61 all the way! The road is in good shape, mostly straight with some gentle curves. Grand Marias Bay
Tourism OpportunitiesYou name it - high-end Lodges (Lutsen), to mompop cabins! Fancy restaurants, to small eateries! Can be chilly next to the Lake, so be prepared. And, there are SIX state parks along the way - yes SIX!
1) Split Rock Lighthouse State Park
2) Tettegouche State Park
3) George H Crosby Manitou State Park
4) Cross River State Wayside State Park
5) Cascade River State Park
6) Judge CR Magney State Park
