"Peace Pipe Vista View" is worth a quick stop. This is a great place to get a view of Lake Itasca. The park service staff could do a little work on this site. The best time to stop and take pictures is just before sunset.

It’s a pretty place to get an overview of the lake. It’s a good place to hike to as a halfway point between Douglas Lodge and Bearpaw Campground.

Do the wilderness drive and the headwaters and if you have time stop here and go down the steps to admire the view.

This is a really pretty view of the lake. There are a couple flights of stairs to hike down to the platform but it was not too hard.

The view of the lake is great. You can put yourself in the moccasins of the early peoples and pioneers here. I'd love to take a canoe there!

This is a stop along the main drive around Lake Itasca with a great view from a viewing platform. There are multiple steps to get to the overlook and you are rewarded with a great view.

OH MY GOODNESS! What a view! You must make the trek down the stairs to see it! There is a trail that connects to the preacher's grove and then continues, or you can just do a one stop from the road.
