  • Spectacular views of the North Shore of Lake Superior including Shovel Point from this elevated point projecting into the lake. Look for the turn off of Hwy 61 for the 1 mile narrow winding road up...  more »
  • Quite the view. Loved the drive in. Limited parking. The view in the late afternoon is breathtaking.  more »
  • North shore best kept secret, the view is spectacular. There is no fancy sign for this location but would beat any state park plus it’s free. Ride up is steep and adds to the excitement
  • A really beautiful place for a photoshoot, but not for the feint of heart! Stay safe on these cliffs!
