This use to be a "drive by" wayside overlook right on Highway 61. Now you will need to pull off of the main Highway 61 at MP 45.1 onto a short service road that leads to this overlook. It is going to be well worth it because the view of Split Rock Lighthouse is like none other.
A picture of Split Rock Light House from this old Highway 61 rest area and overlook is the icon image of the North Shore. A million pictures as well as a million people have visited this spot. If you have not been there, here is what you will see. If you have been there, you know this is what it looks like.
