The loop takes you along the Continental Divide and includes a section of the Savanna Portage.

Need to Know

It's in a state park so you need a day pass of annual pass.

Description

This is a loop trail that follows three named trails in the Savanna Portage State Park. The trail is wide and mostly grassy. Would be awesome hike during the fall. The Savanna Portage Trail went between the St Louis River and the Mississippi. Nearly 7 miles of that trail are still maintained in this park. There is an overlook for the Continental Divide and many educational signs for the Savanna Portage.

There are more trails in the park. This was a great hike in MN lake country.

Flora & Fauna

Flys in the July. Beautiful upside down lily.
