The Whitefish Bay Scenic Byway allows you to escape to the shores of Lake Superior for a relaxing drive or exploration of scenic sand beaches. The byway begins just north of Brimley on Curly Lewis Memorial Highway also known as Lake Shore Drive. The two lane road passes through a hardwood forest of birch, maple, and oak, which blaze red, orange, and gold during late September and early October. After the intersection with Rexford Road (FR 3157) there are several paved parking pull offs and white sand paths to the lake shore. Plan to spend time walking the beach, wading in Lake Superior, or having a picnic. The North Country National Scenic Trail follows the shore with frequent access points from the byway.
Location: From the intersection of M-28 and I-75 drive 7.5 miles west on M-28 to M-221/Brimley. Turn right (north) and drive 2.5 miles on M-221 to Lake Shore Drive.
