Routing: MN 61 begins its trek along the North Shore of Lake Superior in Duluth at the Northern Terminus of I-35. Starting out as a two-to-three lane highway through northeastern Duluth, MN 61 becomes four-lane divided on the outskirts of town, and is such up to Two Harbors. From there, MN 61 continues northeast along the heavily-forested Lake Superior shoreline up to the MN 1 junction near Silver Bay, passing through two tunnels along that stretch. Northeast of MN 1, MN 61 passes through Grand Marais, and ultimately Grand Portage, near which MN 61 ends at the Pigeon River Bridge, which crosses into Ontario and ties in with King's Highway 61.
