“A difficult hike to the highest point in Minnesota, towering over Superior National Forest.”— Kevin Killingbeck
Eagle Mountain Trail is rugged with roots, rocks, and steep grades that will lead you to the highest point in Minnesota. There are also a couple low lying boardwalks that could be underwater so be prepared to potentially get your feet wet. The highest point of the summit is marked with a medallion and plaque.
Heading up the mountain, the grades increase and the trail becomes more difficult. There are multiple overlooks atop the mountain that provide spectacular views of Superior National Forests tree canopy below.
Be sure to continue to the highest point which is marked by a plaque and medallion. When you are finished being the highest person on land in Minnesota return the way you came.
