High Falls of the Pigeon River

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. Grand Portage State Park is at mile marker 144.0 near the boundary between the United States and Canada.

The hike is a 1-mile round trip accessible boardwalk to the scenic overlook of the High Falls (easy) and the 4.5-mile round trip Middle Falls loop (difficult) which meanders through woods and leads to the Middle Falls
