The Superior National Forest drive takes travelers on a relaxing wooded drive from the North Shore to the communities of the Iron Range. Fall color buffs will delight in the spectacular reds and yellows of the hardwoods, and the towering pines.
There are no towns along the way, so enjoy the natural beauty and the chance to observe the area's many species of birds. Migrating hawks can be witnessed over the Laurentian Divide at the Skibo Vista Scenic Overlook.
Highlights include the 1913 Toimi School, the Timber Arch Bridge, the White Pine Interpretive Trail, the Bird Lake Recreation Area and the Cadotte Lake Recreation Area, with a boat landing and fishing dock.
