Brule - St. Croix Portage Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"For centuries humans have sought this passage between two rivers flowing opposite directions, north to Superior and south to the Mississippi. Consider the Native Americans, and the European explorers who followed, as you hike through woods and wetlands to find this historical portage point.

French explorer Daniel Greysolon Sieur du Lhut, Duluth’s namesake, was the first to make a record of his passage over this trail in 1680. His story mentions cutting through one hundred beaver dams on the Bois Brule River. He may have been the first to leave a written account, but it seems reasonable to believe that he learned of the route from Native Americans who had used it for some time."
