Since there are three county highpoints in close proximity here (Alger, Luce, and Schoolcraft), consider visiting all of them while you are in this area. Approach the area by driving 14.25 miles south from Grand Marais (on Route 77) to Lavender Corner, or drive north 11 miles from the intersection of Routes 77 and 28. From Lavender Corner, drive east on very sandy roads for about 3.8 miles to a spot where a trail can be seen going north into the woods (be sure to stay left at the fork in the road at 2.8 miles). Hike north on the trail until it splits and swings east. Go to your right just a bit, then north up the hill. The highpoint is a little left of where you crest out.
