Description

A highlight of Tettegouche State Park, the Baptism River cascades down 100 feet to create the High Falls. These falls are the tallest falls in Minnesota that do not share a boarder with Canada. There is a river crossing via the swing bridge that allows hikers to explore both sides of the waterfall. You can access the bottom of the falls from the eastern side of the river.

Short Hike: Most access this waterfall from the Tettegouche Visitor Center which includes free parking and a new fabulous center. The whole trip is around 3 miles.

Great hike to the falls. Even after a rain the trail was very passable.

Icy - First half is smooth sailing with dried mud and small patches of ice. Second half of the trail is pretty sketchy with the ice and uneven terrain. We had to turn back
