Had some great information but pictures are worth a thousand words. Once you get pics it will be a great page.

I am glad somebody came in and updated this page. Perhaps some more photos, and a short description of the trail, (elevation gain, landmarks - so you don't get lost, etc.) This site still needs some padding.

The page needs more photographs. But good information here for this important regional peak.



Eagle looks, from the Topozone map, that it might have some cliffs. Does it?

You should mention the difficulties of MN's highpoint (bugs, terrain, possible animal encounters).

Difficulties?

I'm not sure what you mean. The mosquito is the state bird of Minnesota, that's true. There are wolves, moose, and black bear in the North Woods, but only the bears might give you trouble.

Terrain ???

Re: Difficulties?

Wow. Only bears might give you trouble. Not from the northwoods are you? Bull moose in mating season are animals to avoid!!! As for the terrain, I meant that good boots are a requirement, especially in the spring when snow and snowmelt can cause problems. Hope this clears up your difficulties understanding me.

Re: Difficulties?

Not from the north woods but spend a lot of time there. Good point on bull moose but I've always been able to avoid moose encounters. In some black bear situations, the bear is seeking you out.

Anyway, I agree fully about the "joys" of spring thaw.

I was just allowed to adopt this SP page. I made massive changes to the page, including adding a lot more photos, a better description of the route, correct driving directions, and actual photo(s) of the peak (as the previous profile photo was of a different hill!). I hope people will generally appreciate the effort put into making this a worthy State Highpoint page on SP.
