This spot has it all. Forest trails, lakeside trails, aspen-birch forest, wetlands, rocky beach, and big lake views. This location is a great one to teach kids about the diversity of the outdoors along the North Shore of Minnesota. We meandered the great trail, and...More

Sugarloaf Cove is not as well-known as the state parks that dot the North Shore, but is a beautiful place to experience the big lake.

Tucked into a natural cove, this area is interesting both for its natural beauty and also for its history in the region. Why stop here when there are so many places along the North Shore? It is a break from the harsh winds of Superior...More

We stopped here for about 2 hours. The small visitor center introduced us to the area and then we took the self-guided 1-mile hike which told about historic logging operations at the site. The trail was easy and the view at the beach was wonderful....More
