State Trunk Highway 70 (often called Highway 70, STH 70 or WIS 70) is a state highway in the U.S. state of Wisconsin. It runs east–west in northern Wisconsin from a shared terminus with WIS 101 at US 2 and US 141 near Florence to a connection with Minnesota State Highway 70 at the St. Croix River 5 miles (8.0 km) west of Grantsburg in Burnett County. It serves the communities of Grantsburg, Siren, Spooner, and the resort areas of Minocqua, Woodruff and Eagle River along its route. WIS 70 is the third most northern route to almost completely cross Wisconsin (after US 2 and WIS 77), stretching from Minnesota to within 4 miles (6.4 km) of the Michigan border.
