Cross River Wayside & Father Baraga's Cross

mile 78.8

Length: 3 miles
Difficulty: moderate

First stop at the wayside rest to admire the center view of the Cross River Waterfalls. From the hiking trailhead on the Skou Road, amble through northern forests with views of the Cross River – imagine logs shooting downstream as the lumberjacks did.

To see Father Baraga’s Cross, drive the Baraga Cross Road south of Highway 61 for 0.25 miles to the parking area and follow the very short paved path.
