Superior National Forest Scenic Byway

Superior National Forest Scenic Byway

The Superior National Forest Scenic Byway, designated as Forest Highway 11, runs from the taconite town of Silver Bay to the logging town of Aurora.  There are long stretches of unbroken forest along this 54 mile road, giving the driver a good sense of being away from it all.  Several trails and campgrounds are on or near the route for perfect resting areas.
