Shooting Star

Scenic Byway

Wildflowers & Native Grasses

MnDOT and the DNR collaborate to manage wildflowers and native grasses along the route of the Shooting Star Wildflower and Historic Route Scenic Byway, one of the first designated wildflower routes in the state. In the southwestern part of Historic Bluff Country, the route follows TH 56, passing through rich agricultural land and small rural towns that offer historical, recreational, and scenic experiences of their own. Additionally, Lake Louise State Park is located along the Byway where visitors and area residents can enjoy the Minnesota Prairie.
