When planning a trip to the Mackinaw Bridge/ Soo Locks area of the eastern UP, this is a must. The road gently curves along the Lake Superior shore line with water on your right, and towering virgin timber covered hills on your left. Many scenic views that will stretch out this ride.
First take a trip up Mission Hill in Brimley for a great look at Spectacle Lake, Lake Superior, and Canada. Freighters can also been seen traveling to the Soo Locks.
Second, stop off at the Point Iroquois lighthouse. The lighthouse is open in the summer and you can even walk the winding stairway to the top and take in the view of Whitefish Bay, where the famous freighter Edmond Fitzgerald sunk taking all souls on board with her.
When you reach Paradise the ride is not over. Continue on to the Shipwreck Museum and Whitefish Point lighthouse, or on to the upper and lower Tahquamenon Falls. This is a great way to spend a relaxing day!
