We had visited the Grand Portage National Monument/fort and decided since we were so close we'd visit the highest waterfall in Minnesota. The river, waterfall and park are literally the last spot before you cross the border into Canada. The rest stop area and park...More

Don't miss out on visiting this great scenic beauty while at the border of Minnesota and Canada. We went on to Thunder Bay, Ontario (don't bother) last year....never again. Stay in MN and enjoy the view!

Took friends up the hike to the high falls on Pigeon River. Amazing view, nice place to get a break from the heat and be sure to stop at the lookout on the right hand side of the road just outside of Grand Portage.
