Split Rock Lighthouse

Shipwrecks from a mighty 1905 November gale prompted the construction of this rugged landmark. Restored to its 1920s appearance, it offers a glimpse of life in a remote and beautiful setting high above some of the world’s most dangerous waters. A must-see for Minnesotans and everyone who loves spectacular scenery.

Climb the restored home of the lighthouse keeper and his family. Bike or in-line skate the new Gitchi-Gami State Trail. Toss stones into Lake Superior.
Bring your camera!
The lighthouse’s 130-foot cliff offers one of the North Shore’s most breathtaking photo opportunities. Location:
3713 Split Lighthouse Road. 20 miles northeast of Two Harbors on MN Hwy.61
