All things Fall! Join us on a backroads driving tour of the Lutsen-Tofte area as it is blanketed in fall colors.
This fun tour starts with a drive up the beautiful Temperance River road. First, a stop at the upper falls to enjoy a short walk to the perfect photo op – a river view with a beautiful colored hill in the backdrop. Then, it’s back to the van to head to the Six Hundred Road and eventually a stop at “Heartbreak Hill” to see the colorful canopy of leaves above us. Another photo op! Our trip continues down the Six Hundred Road leading us to the Honeymoon Trail via the Sawbill Trail – a gorgeous fall road! Enjoy another scenic stopping point at White Pine Lake with a fishing dock to view the colors around this serene remote lake. Our next stop will be Wild Country Maple Syrup! While here, we’ll tour the facility to see where they tap the trees, learn how the system works to transfer sap to the boiling room, and visit where they bottle the final product. In addition, enjoy a self-service store with a variety of products to sample and purchase!
On our final stretch, we’ll head down the Caribou Trail back to highway 61 with a stop at the Poplar River Falls (another short walk) for one last waterfall and scenic view of the leaves.
