High Falls of the Pigeon River Hike

mile 150.8


Length: 1 mile [4.5 mile more difficult Middle Falls Loop]
Difficulty: easy
at Grand Portage State Park
The Pigeon River drops 950 feet ending with the 120-foot drop High Falls. This lower reach is particularly rugged until a short distance after the falls, where the river widens. An easy half-mile hiking trail in Grand Portage State Park leads to the High Falls. The trail end has two great viewing decks where you can feel the spray of the falls and take photos! Leave time for a visit to the center and store within this state park, too.
