Glacial Ridge Trail Scenic Byway

Canary Beach Resort is on the Glacial Ridge Trail Scenic Byway — a must to drive if you are in Pope County! 30,000 years ago, our area was covered by a massive glacier. After years of melting, what remains is an extensive, wide accumulation of boulders, stones, gravel and lakes!

Pottyville

Located on Lake Amelia, there is a collection of over a dozen repurposed outhouses, each taking on a different theme. Nell Riccatone and Gary Hoover found a few abandoned outhouses in a nearby field about 5 years back and decided to use one as a potting shed.  As the enthusiasm for the decorated shed grew, they acquired more over the years and decorated them with different themes.  Checkout this local free attraction!
