A prize route, the first part of this tour offers those who travel Lake Superior’s rugged shoreline unlimited recreational possibilities as they pass the bays and rivers. Starting in the port city of Two Harbors, you will enjoy many scenic vistas along the North Shore Scenic Drive and completed sections of the Gitchi-Gami Trail. Arriving at the oldest settlement on the North Shore, you will climb the same mountains John Beargrease did with his dogsled. Then, traveling up the Superior National Forest Scenic Byway, you will pass through the remote village of Isabella, where moose still roam. In the solitude of the forest and the whispering of the pines you may hear a wolf howl. On the last leg of this ride, you will have several miles of panoramic views of Lake Superior on your descent back to the city with two bays.
