Grand Portage State Park is day use only.
The Falls Trail at Grand Portage State Park leads to the highest waterfall in Minnesota, High Falls, located on the Pigeon River.
Need to Know
Coming from the south driving, vehicle GPS units might not recognize the final turn into the state park and will try to lead you through Canada. There is signage telling you where to turn before the port of entry.
Starting at the Grand Portage State Park Visitor Center just before the port of entry on the US/Canadian border, there is a paved and wheelchair accessible trail that leads to a boardwalk providing spectacular viewpoints of High Falls on the Pigeon River, the highest waterfall in Minnesota standing at 120 feet.
History & Background
The 9 mile Grand Portage Trail was created to bypass this waterfall. This Minnesota State Park is unique as it is located on land owned by the Grand Portage Band of Chippewa and is leased to the state for use as a state park.
