A short drive from Highway 61 and two short paths lead to three wide-open views at the Silver Bay Scenic Overlook. Follow the blue signs into Silver Bay and up the hill. The first parking area has a short path to an aerial view of of the Cliffs Mining Plant. A loop from the large parking area brings you to an overlook with panoramic shore and lake views.
