Afraid of heights?
Tettegouche State Park is home to some of the most diverse landscape of all the state parks. Because of that, Tettegouche hiking provides a diversity in the trails you won’t find elsewhere in one place.
Where is it?
Hiking here is part of the state park located about 58 miles (93) northeast of Duluth on Highway 61.
There are more than 20 miles of trails in Tettegouche to delight those lucky few who secure campsites at this coveted state park.
Major hiking loops take you to Mt. Baldy. On the way you’ll take in plenty of Lake Superior overlooks.
For those with less time on their hands, the big draw at Tettegouche is High Falls on the Baptism River, home of the swing bridge.
The hike here is easy by terrain, however the first leg of the trail is a substantial uphill climb. The hike to High Falls is about 3/4 of a mile one way.
Tettegouche was once home to a private club. The club sold to a family before becoming part of the state park system.
