Crystal Bay Township, Lake County, MN – The Lake County Highway Department has resumed work to expand the parking area for the Superior Hiking Trailhead on Little Marais Road (Highway 6) in Crystal Bay Township outside Finland. Lake County staff will be constructing a significantly larger parking area and new entrance off Little Marais Road. This new parking area will provide additional parking for this popular trailhead and will provide a larger setback from nearby Sawmill Creek.
Construction work is expected to be wrapped up by mid-June. In the meantime, trail users are asked to utilize the old parking area and if crews are working and hauling materials, they may direct you to the nearby Lake County gravel pit where alternate parking will be made available. Your cooperation is requested to help expedite the project and keep the worksite and trail access safe for everyone.
Questions regarding the project can be directed to the Lake County Highway Department at (218) 834-8380.
