  • This is a cool viewing spot. Not much to do at the top other than just hang out for a few minutes. Expert rock climbers were belaying down the steep cliff. The parking is really limited and there was ...  more »
  • This is a hike and very much worth the effort. The views are completely spectacular! If you like climbing on rocks and seeing as far as you possibly can then this place is for you!  more »
  • It is possibly to drive right up to the attraction. Some minor hiking from there if you want to experience the full view of the West. The sign at the bottom says large vehicles not allowed. I drive a ...  more »

  • Definitely pull over and check out the views of Lake Superior... It's kind of easy to miss since you're not looking out for the brown sign on the road. Winding road up to the top. Great spot for pictures or a stop for a picnic lunch. Beautiful vistas over Lake Superior. Must see if you're heading north past Duluth.
  • Narrow road to go up the hill but safe and fun to drive. Limited parking say about 20 cars, if busy parking can be tricky as you have no where to park but come all the way down the hill to park. People can also prefer to hike but no separate hiking paths, at least I couldn’t see. Once you get off, hold on to your kids, no guard rail and absolutely sheer drop of about 300+ ft And then , you will experience breath taking views looking at majestic Superior lake and beyond your eye can see. It’s also great place for professional cliff hanging and climbing Overall worth absolute the money, time to drive up there. There is no play area or picking area as such but you can sit on the rocks and stare at water and sky all day long.
  • The views are spectacular the walk to the top from the parking area is long but also enjoyable it is uphill so take your time if you are not used to it. You have to walk from parking area because they dont plow the roadway up to the overlook but don't be discouraged by the locked gate it is open and the walkis worth it. While you are walking if there is fresh snow on the ground take a look at the footprints in the snow you might be surprised at what creatures prints you will see I won't take away the surprise or thrill of what we found look around for yourself. Here is a bit of what we saw.
  • Must see on the North shore. Free access.
  • Beautiful view. Hang on to your little ones. It's a 300 foot cliff with no guard rails.
