We all know that Minnesota, for the most part, is relatively flat. You won’t find any soaring peaks or high-elevation valleys here. But our state still has its own version of mountains, and they are still breathtakingly beautiful. For example, the Sawtooth Mountains cover much of the North Shore, offering amazing vantage points of Lake Superior. And the Misquah Hills span across the Boundary Waters region, letting people catch glimpses from above that only those willing to put in the work will ever see. It is in the Misquah Hills that the hike we’d like to feature today takes place. Read on below to learn more about the Eagle Mountain Trail in Minnesota’s Misquah Hills. It’ll take you high above the ground, to Minnesota’s highest point!
