This is a 5-mile hike and includes some hilly and rugged terrain. The hike will take roughly 2.5-3 hours to complete depending on how blown away we are by all of the sights we’ll see. Please dress for the weather and bring with you water, a snack, binoculars and a camera if you wish.

Join Minnesota Tettegouche State Park Naturalist, Kurt Mead, for a look at our local antlered animals during a live, virtual presentation. We’ll discuss the ecologies of these animals and the stresses that they face. Antlers from several different animals will be on display. Kurt will also talk about his book, "Dragonflies of the North Woods."
