Description

Pass corn fields, native grasses, wildflowers and the Shooting Star Recreational Trail when driving along the Shooting Star Scenic Byway in the Historic Prairie Country of Minnesota. The towns of Adams, Rose Creek, Taopi, and LeRoy combine to give this byway a small town touch. These communities combine with the natural beauty of the prairie and the unique wildflowers for which this byway is named.

The route passes through rich agricultural regions and small rural towns with historic buildings of national significance, bed and breakfasts, golf courses, swimming pools and city parks. Lake Louise State Park is also located on this route, offering visitors and residents alike with many opportunities to enjoy the Minnesota Prairie.

This official Minnesota Scenic Byway is one of the state's first designated wildflower routes. The Minnesota Department of Transportation and Natural Resources collaborate to manage wildflowers and native grasses along the route.
