Nice view. Very worthwhile to check this place out. And it is free, so that is a bonus. Very worthwhile to check this place out. And it is free, so that is a bonus.

“Pretty cool... worth the short drive!”
Reviewed September 5, 2011

The Leonidas Overlook is the tallest man-made point on the Iron Range. It was created from mining overburdon (the surface materials that are removed to create the open-pit mines). You can see for 15 miles in all directions. It's free and easy to find (less than a mile out of Eveleth. Definitely worth the short trip!
