It is absolutely breathtaking as you drive up along the shore. The sparking lake with gentle waves on one side, and the multicolored tree's of red, orange, yellow, brown, and green on the other side. Be sure to stop at Gooseberry Falls and Split Rock Light House. One of our favorites is the Temperance River trail with the rapidly flowing river that has cut deep potholes along the riverbed. Fall is a wonderful time to visit the North Shore, but make sure you have reservations as hotels fill up quickly in the fall.
The Skyline drive in the hills above the city of Duluth, with scenic views of the lake, is quite beautiful also.
