Lake Superior South Shore Scenic Highway Road Trip

View on Map
42.2 miles: 0 hours, 44 minutes
The massive Lake Superior is the star of this portion of SR 28. It’s not in view the entire time, but you’ll get to see quite a bit of it. At some points there are wide, open views, and at others you’ll see bits of blue poking through the trees. Sometimes the lake laps right up to the byway’s shore. At Au Train you can see the Au Train River join the lake.

The highlight of this drive along the Lake Superior South Shore Scenic Highway in the Upper Peninsula is the awesome view it provides of the water. The beginning of the route is in Hiawatha National Forest, so it’s not surprising that trees dominate the scenery. The number of highway lanes varies throughout the trip. Take some time and pull off at the designated scenic areas.
