highest falls within MN
High Falls of the Baptism River

The highest falls entirely within Minnesota can be seen at Tettegouche State Park. This superb trout stream descends over 700 feet including the 70-foot High Falls and the 40-foot Illgen Falls further upstream.

You can access the High Falls via a 3-mile hiking trail departing from the Visitor Center along the east side of the trail [lots of steps and elevation, not knee-friendly] OR via short spur trail accessed at the Superior Hiking Trail parking area located one mile north of Hwy 61 on MN Hwy 1. Parking is on left, easy to miss, so watch out for Superior Hiking Trail sign.

Tettegouche State Park is at Hwy 61 mile marker 58.5 northeast of Silver Bay.
