No Snowmobiles Allowed

A late day view of the breakwater at Saxon Harbor, located on Lake Superior's Oronto Bay near the Iron County village of Saxon, Wisconsin. The harbor, adjacent to Oronto Creek, is a part of a county park that includes deep sea fishing, camping and a sandy beach stretching for four miles westward. Historically, this was near the beginning of an ancient Native American trade route known as the Flambeau Trail that became the highway over which French Canadian voyagers carried fur pelts, gunpowder and other trade goods over the difficult portage. Saxon Harbor was the site of a fur trading post operated by John Jacob Astor's American Fur Company from 1808 to 1830.
