Ray Berglund State Wayside

Wednesday, August 5th, 2015

Last week we took a little break to stop by the Ray Berglund State Waysid. It is located on highway 61 between Tofte and Lutsen and was established in 1951 as a memorial to a business man and conservationist. It includes a half-mile trail along the Onion River, picnic areas (with excellent views!), and a recently rebuilt sanitation facility.

Here a few photos that we snapped during the little adventure:

The restrooms/sanitation facilities were recently rebuilt. In the distance the stairs mark the beginning of the half-mile hiking trail

A view from the top of the trail stairs. There are many great views from the trail, especially from the picnic site that is located about 100 feet from the parking lot.

We love seeing bees, especially as populations decline around the world.
