For the simple, raw, powerful beauty of nature, perhaps nothing in Wisconsin can match the Apostle Islands found along the shore of Lake Superior north of Ashland. These twenty-two islands, twenty-one of which form the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, loom tantalizingly close through the Lake Superior mist, inviting travelers to walk through their stands of old growth forests, explore their caves, and gaze back at the towering red cliffs of the mainland coastline. Along this route you’ll also see five waterfalls, including the state’s largest, and cross both the Red Cliff and Bad River Indian Reservations. Lake Superior weather is fickle, so pack a jacket and a sweater, even in July and August. One day it can be 90 degrees and humid, and the next 50 degrees and raining. Special attractions: Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, Pattison State Park, Amnicon Falls State Park, Brule River State Forest, Bad River and Red Cliff Indian Reservations. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more.
