The best way to go as far as a pretty straight road in good shape would be to head down to Silver Bay and get on Lake County 15 / Forest Highway 11 and that will take you over towards Hoyt Lakes. Lake County 15 will turn into St. Louis County 16. Stay on SLC 16 and that will bring you out to US 53 just south of Eveleth. Once you are on 53 just head north and that will bring you right to Cook.

Right now There is a fairly decent detour on Highway 1 between Isabella and the Tomahawk Road (about 20 miles south of Ely) and then again between the Y west of Tower and Angora. Any other time I would recomend that route if you wanted a scenic drive with a good chance of seeing a moose but there is major road construction going on south of Ely.

Are there any problems in coming up Hwy 2 from the North Shore to Ely? Would I still hit the construction at Hwy 1 by going that way?

And is the construction West of Tower still going on?

I would appreciate any info.

Thank you

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
