Grand Portage State Park: High Falls Trail
When we got back to the car we decided to check out part of the reason for the Grand Portage's existence: the High Falls of the Pigeon River. The drive up to the northeastern-most section of Minnesota is very scenic, featuring some very rugged topography. The hike at Grand Portage State Park was a short mile round-trip hike along a gentle, paved trail. The falls themselves were impressive and it was easy to see why a portage would have been necessary.
