Minnesota’s North Shore: Craggy Cliffs and Cobblestone Beaches on Lake Superior
Lake Superior’s North Shore runs up from Duluth, Minnesota, to the tip of the lake at Thunder Bay, Ontario. In the summer, this region draws visitors for the shoreline’s towering cliffs and cobblestone beaches. Split Rock Lighthouse serves as the area’s unofficial icon, a relic from 1910 that’s built on top of a 130-foot cliff.
Farther inland, dense forests and hills give way to rivers and waterfalls, many of which are accessible by hiking and mountain-biking trails. There are dozens of popular fishing spots where you can angle for walleye, smallmouth bass, and trout. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources lists seven accessible fishing piers that are great for those without access to boats.
