This hike should take you around 4 hours to the highest point in Minnesota. Great panoramic views of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.

This moderate hike takes you to the highest point in Minnesota, at all of 2,301 ft in elevation. The first part of the hike, which runs along Whale Lake, is a gentle upwards climb. You gain most of the hike's elevation in the final push to the top, within the last mile of the hike. Enjoy the view, rest up, and head back down the trail.

Don't forget to get a day permit at the parking lot.
