County Road 61

County Road 61 is a county route, which runs from the intersection of Minnesota 61 Expressway and North Shore Scenic Drive in Two Harbors, Minnesota, and follows the North Shore Scenic Drive to Duluth on Saint Louis County Road 61, passing through the communities of Larsmont and Knife River in Lake County. County 61 is more commonly known and signed as North Shore Scenic Drive between Duluth and Two Harbors and is also known as Scenic 61.

County 61 (between Duluth and Two Harbors) was commissioned as U.S. 61 in 1926, ready for use by 1929, and paved by 1940. Until the expressway between Duluth and Two Harbors was constructed inland in the 1960s, County 61 (then U.S. 61) had served as the principal route between Duluth and Two Harbors. Formerly known as U.S. 61, the state turned over management of the road to Saint Louis and Lake counties in the 1960s and the two counties then designated the route "County 61".

The course for Grandma's Marathon follows this road route annually in June.
