Minnesota's Witch Tree


You aren't likely to see this epic Minnesota tree in person, but the legend is enough to make it amazing. The tree is located on the shore of Lake Superior in Cook County and is at least 300 years old. It's growing on bare rock on the shoreline.

Most people can't see the tree up close anymore after a number of vandalism problems, so only visitors accompanied by a local Ojibwe band member can make the trek. The tree is considered sacred to the Ojibwe.
