Beautiful and remote. Lovely drive, probably best in the fall. If you're looking to buy fantastic jams and baked goods, be sure to visit JamPot, run by a local monastery. It is located along the coastal drive.

Born and raised in a neighboring county of the Keweenaw Peninsula I always encourage visitors to head North on US 41 to Copper Harbor and surrounding area to experience the tranquility and beauty of the entire area. They are never disappointed.
