High Falls—Grand Portage State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Ojibwe Indians named the Grand Portage Git-che O niga-ming, “the great carrying place.” This 9-mile overland route served as a link between Lake Superior, the Pigeon River, and beyond to interior lands. The land route was not their first choice, but the river made it clear that there really wasn’t a choice.

The river flows roughly 30 miles from South Fowl Lake in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness to Lake Superior, and the lower 10 miles or so is a succession of torrential rapids, cascades and waterfalls, and huge boulders strewn hither and yon. It is completely unnavigable, especially in a birch-bark canoe, the preference for water travel at the time."
