Pigeon River High Falls at Grand Portage State Park

Lee Radzak

Torrents of wild water plummet 120 feet over the High Falls of the Pigeon River on the U.S. - Canadian border. Visitors of all abilities can take a one-half mile trail and boardwalk to the falls overlook area. Three viewing decks provide various views for photography or quiet contemplation.

Grand Portage State Park is designed for day use only and contains mixed hardwood-conifer forests, wildflowers and hiking trails along the banks of the Pigeon River. Lake Superior is about one mile east of the park. A Bird Checklist is available.

The park lies within the Grand Portage Indian Reservation. Interpretive displays at the Visitor Center introduce the culture and traditions of the Grand Portage Ojibwe people.
