Great spot for views over the lake and bird watching. Friendly trails for beginners as well. There are a few scenic spots to stop via car and take photos, but its definitely worth going on foot.

We had heard this was a great place to see live birds up close so we drove up there. It was true, we seen so many birds up there up close. If you like hawks this is a must see.

We saw a lot and enjoyed it. Clear but windy is best to see birds of all kinds. The locals up there were very kind and identified the birds when we had trouble. Great view of the city and lake too.

This has been a favorite spot of mine for more than 40 years. In the mid 70's I helped at the banding station where hundreds of migrating raptors were banded. The view of Lake Superior is spectacular and if you are there in September and...More
