Corrigan’s Lookout

July 1, 2019

This might be my new favorite hidden gem in northern Wisconsin! Corrigan’s Lookout is located in Iron County and offers some spectacular panoramic views of Wisconsin’s landscape. A short, quarter-mile hike will lead you to a rock outcropping that overlooks Upson Lake.



0.25 miles.


WI-122, Saxon, WI 54559; 33 miles southeast of Ashland, WI.



I really wish we could’ve hiked here during golden hour but we were on our way up to Bayfield and the timing just didn’t work out. I’m definitely going to come up here again in the fall though. I bet it’s beautiful!

Getting there

Head north out of Upson on Hwy 122 (aka Hoyt Road). In about 2.5 miles, you’ll see a little white sign on the right sign of the road that says ‘Corrigan’s Lookout’. Turn left and head down the narrow, dirt road. It’s rocky and uneven, so drive with care! It’ll only take a few minutes before you reach an opening where you can park.

A Manitowish Waters Getaway at Alderwood Resort

Nestled in the heart of northern Wisconsin sits The Brick House – a beautifully immaculate colonial-style rental home on the shores of Alder Lake, part of Manitowish Waters Chain of 10 Lakes. It’s a large and spacious place complete with five bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, two living rooms (each with their own fireplaces!), and a big three-season room.
