A one way road that really allows you to experience the park without getting out of your car.

“Newly Paved Wilderness Drive”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

The 10-mile wilderness drive has been completely repaved! At last, you won't be scaring off the wildlife when your suspension bottoms out in the ruts and potholes!

“Wonderfull drive”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

Almost made us feel like we were transported back in time! Many different lakes and hiking trails available for your enjoyment! While the trail was windy at times by taking your time you were sure to enjoy everything the drive had to offer.

“A must do”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

Wilderness drive is a 10 mile one way road through Itasca state park and much worth your time. From here you have access to the observation tower, red and white pine trails and many more. Very beautiful drive, would be great in the fall or on bike as well.
