Overview

Mount Trudee is a large anorthosite dome rising some 400 feet above the thick Minnesota forest. Situated along the Superior Hiking Trail, Trudee presents a beautiful view of Lake Superior, the Palisade Valley, as well as several other inland lakes within Tettegouche State Park. While its east face is covered in white pines, the rock outcroppings give one the feeling of being on a high mountain top, as close to one can get in Minnesota anyway. My personal favorite spot along the Superior Hiking Trail.


Getting There

Take Highway 61 north out of Duluth about 60 miles until you reach the junction of Highway 1, take a left. After about a mile you should see the Superior Hiking Trail Trailhead off to your left. Follow the trail westward for roughly 4 miles.

Trudee can be climbed at any time of the year, and all 4 seasons have their own advantages (fall colors, spring foliage, ect). Trudee makes an excellent snowshoe in the winter.

Red Tape

Mount Trudee is protected in Tettegouche state park, so all state park rules apply.

Camping

Tettegouche has 2 campgrounds, one cart-in style camp directly on Lake Superior and a standard car-camping ground on the Baptism River.

Hello,



I'm the person who said Mount Trudee was anorthosite, not granite. You made one correction, but there are still two more references to Trudee being granite. The first is on the page that pops up if you Google Mount Trudee. The second is further down the page where you made the first correction.
