Great place to get a short hike in with woods and beach along the trail. Usually not crowded unless its Sat afternoon. Early morning is the best time, bring a coffee and watch the sun rise.

A great hike via either forest trail or beach. Or you can combine some of both. Like all things Minnesota, pristine and well cared-for.

You cant go wrong on the shores of Lake Superior and Park Point this seemingly endless sand beach is wonderful. Old growth forest in a unique environment. It is how ever a bit stressful watching for poison ivy that is everywhere. If you do this...More
