Although Indians and voyageurs once toiled over the brutal portage between the St. Louis River and the Mississippi River over the Savanna Portage, things are a little more pleasant today.

1. Hike the Continental Divide Trail ridge
2. Take a break at the walk-in campsite
3. Admire the view
4. Enjoy trailside treats
5. Cool off with peace and quiet
