Get Your Wheels on the Road
Picture yourself arriving at the Timberlake Lodge, conveniently located in the heart of Grand Rapids. This full service hotel has everything you need for a comfortable night including an on-site restaurant and water park. Grab a bite to eat and then head to the hot tub where the water will soothe the day away. You’ll awake refreshed and ready for an exciting day on the road.
Highway 38 leads north out of Grand Rapids and is truly a grand ride. Known as The Edge of the Wilderness Scenic Byway it takes you through the Chippewa National Forest along rolling forest hills and quiet tamarack bogs. Wayside stops and overlooks encourage travelers to explore the natural beauty of the north woods. At the Laurentian Divide, Discovery Site number 20, water on the north side flows to Hudson Bay while water on the south side flows to the Gulf of Mexico.
Continue Your Motorcycle Adventure
The Edge of the Wilderness byway continues on to Marcell, a small town in the heart of the woods. Plan a break from the road at the Edge of the Wilderness Discovery Center where you’ll find displays and knowledgeable staff who can help you identify the tree species found in the national forest. Explore the recently restored Marcell CCC Lodge built with logs and you’ll feel a connection to the industry that still powers northern Minnesota today. The Edge of the Wilderness Scenic Byway is 47 miles long. Allow at least 3 hours to complete the drive.
Highway 35 leads you around Bowstring Lake towards Winnibigoshish. Once you’ve made it to Highway 46 you’re near the perfect place to grab a bite to eat: Lake Winnie’s Gosh Dam Place. Relax and enjoy their full service menu with drinks. Daily soups have made the special list for years and Randy’s Ribs are not to be missed.
One last stop on your tour is the White Oak Casino in Deer River. It may be small on the outside, but inside it holds 300 slot machines plus blackjack tables, a café, full service bar and gift shop. It’s a fun place to play and full of hospitality. Back in Grand Rapids you’ll be ready for rest, knowing you made the most of the fleeting warm days by getting on your bike and touring the best route in the Northland.
