Getting There Suggest change

Park at the Superior Hiking Trailhead on Highway 6, east of Finland Minnesota, near the Crystal Bay Cemetery. (The Trailhead actually attached to the parking lot is the wrong one.) Walk back west along the highway to the trailhead on the south side of Hw 6. From the trailhead it is about a 30-40 minute moderate hike. Follow the trail a split in the path. Follow the sign to the Picnic area. All the boulders are along this trail.
