Access to Sawmill Dome from Little Marais Road (Lake County Rd 6) is two miles west of our home. We hike this portion of the Superior Hiking Trail often. Ascent is steep from County Rd 6, about 200 feet in 1/4 mile. Steep ups and downs the whole route to MN Highway 1 near Illgen City. Worth the effort. Another wonderful access point is from Wolf Ridge Environmental Leaning Center, near Finland, Minnesota. Several trails branch off from the ELC access.
