A long abandoned ore dock severed from the tracks long ago. It stretches almost half a mile from end to end and is quite high. The whole place is in terrible condition, but it's good for photos!

    Lots of abandoned boats tied up next to the dock, and the top of the docks give a cool view of Duluth. 310 ore pockets with 350 tons max each. That's over 300 ways to kill yourself!
