From Hwy 61 at MN Hwy 1 (60 miles from Duluth), drive north on MN Hwy 1 about 7 mies to County Road 7, take Lake County Road 7 northeast (a right) for about 7 miles.
Beautiful boardwalk around most to the lake. A small spot of trail is dirt. Many wildflowers and old Cedar Trees line the shore. Part of George H. Crosby Manitou State Park with limited development, and the camping areas remain backpack-only. Wildlife sightings are frequent.
