Lower Falls—Poplar River Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The lower falls on the Poplar River are on the grounds of Lutsen Resort, Minnesota’s oldest resort, with a 100-year history of entertaining generations of visitors. A Swedish immigrant named Charles Axel Nelson was attracted, and rightly so, to the outstanding beauty of the North Shore and decided to build a home here.

He named it “Lutsen,” and history tells us that as his home grew in size to accommodate his family, travelers in the area routinely stopped in to rest. Pretty soon, word spread that the Nelson place was a mighty fine refuge to catch a nap and gobble a hearty meal, and before long travelers came to stay while enjoying the north woods. And so began a long tradition of providing a treasured North Shore haven for visitors."
