Five things to do at Savanna Portage State Park

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.

Here's how to make the most of a visit to Minnesota's third-largest state park with a few hours:

1. Hike the Continental Divide Trail ridge

2. Take a break at the walk-in campsite
