TETTEGOUCHE: BAPTISM RIVER AND SHOVEL POINT – SEPTEMBER 8, 2021
The Happy Hikers will hike the Shovel Point Trail at Tettegouche State Park. This 1+ mile hike starts at the visitor center and follows the rugged Lake Superior shoreline along a clifftop. We will end at the tip of the point with a stunning view of Palisade Head to the west. Uneven terrain, wooden stairs and boardwalk.

We will then go the opposite direction to the mouth of the Baptism River, then follow this trail up the side of the river to the High Falls—the highest waterfall completely within the boundaries of Minnesota. This 3-mile round trip hike has steep terrain and wooden stairs. Difficulty Level: Moderate.

We will enjoy our picnic lunch at the tables behind the Visitor Center.

Meet at the YMCA parking lot near the tennis courts at 9:00 am. We’ll carpool to Tettegouche State Park Visitor Center. Suggested donation for drivers: $3. Well-behaved dogs are welcome, on a leash.

WHAT TO BRING: Hat, sunscreen, insect repellent, sturdy hiking shoes/boots, hiking sticks, water, and a sack lunch.

If it’s raining, the hike will be cancelled.
