Wisconsin Lake Superior Scenic Byway

95.4 miles: 1 hours, 51 minutes

For much of the Wisconsin Lake Superior Scenic Byway, SR 13 traces the path of Wisconsin's section of Lake Superior, providing drivers with spectacular vistas of turquoise waters greeting rocky shores. Toward journey’s end, the Apostle Islands rise from the waters like giant lily pads floating on a pond.


Begin your relaxing drive through farmland and dense forests of white spruce, aspen, white pine, balsam fir and paper birch; watch for deer, bears and eagles. Lake Superior peeks through about 35 miles into the trip and more sweeping views featuring sandy beaches, rocky shores and bluffs appear along the route. Quaint fishing villages pop up along the way.
