Paradise to Grand Marais, MI

Is there a good way to get to Grand Marais, MI from Paradise without going through Newberry? Is there a shortcit that is good road? Is the truck trail a bumpy cowpath?

Hello babusIndiana,

Are you looking at going from Paradise over to H 37 to Muskallonge Lake/State Park then going along the Deer Park Truck Trail? If you are it is not what I would call a bumpy cow path. I think the road is fine for travel. You wouldn't want to cruise it at 60mph and there are no traffic lights but the road is a nice easy drive.

It is easy to lose your way on those back roads. Not a distaster, but it could mean it takes longer to take the shortcut.

To be a little more clear - that is if you take the secondary roads cutting off most of H37 and a section of 123.

Also H-58 can be pretty tough in the spring.

We usually visit the falls and then head to grand Marais by traveling south through Newberry and then heading west and then north. Seems like there should be a shortcut. Not many roads on the map to choose from. I have a GPS system, but it may not work well up north. do locals traveling to Grand Marais take M123 to M28 to M77? or do they have a shorter/less time consuming route?
