Leaving Red Cliff the Byway passes through farm fields interspersed with forested areas. Driving now primarily westward along the north side of the Bayfield Peninsula, the view open onto broad vistas of the south shore of Lake Superior and, in the distance, the higher hills of northeast Minnesota are clearly visible.
Past the Happy Hollow Junction, the Byway runs adjacent to the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore's mainland unit on your right, and Meyers Road intersects the Byway. An important side trip, Meyers Beach is the starting point for many kayakers in summer and hikers in winter who want to view the magnificent mainland sea caves at Mawikwe Bay. The National Park Service also maintains a hiking trail which runs along the top of the red sandstone cliffs, offering spectacular views of Lake Superior. Note there is a fee to park at Meyers Beach.
