I recently went to Palisade Head with a few of my friends and their small kids. The view is spectacular!! I would suggest keeping a close eye on kids that can walk as there are no fences to keep you from going over the edge. For adventurous people that is great though because you can get as close to the... 更多
You could easily miss the Palisade Head turnoff sign to drive to near the top if not careful. If you come from the south on highway 61, two or three miles after passing through Silver Bay (which is 3-4 miles north of Beaver Bay) it will be on your right. If you get to the new Tettegouche State park visitors... 更多
Palisade Head is beautiful place to stop along Hwy. #61. I think lots of folks drive by Palisade Head without realizing what a interesting and scenic spot it is. There are few places on the North Shore where you can get such a great view of the lake. HOWEVER, PALISADES IS ALSO QUITE DANGEROUS- THERE AREA NO GUARDRAILS. I saw... 更多
My daughter wanted to visit so she could get some pictures. Because it is not commercialized at all it feels like you discovered something unknown, especially since there were very few other people there. You have to watch for a small sign to find it. I would not recommend small children because there are no safety rails at the cliffs.... 更多
We drove up to the parking lot, which already had great views, but our teenage daughters wanted to climb as high as possible! So we climbed with them and we all reached the highest point of Palisade Head. The view was amazing!
Palisade Head is a spectacular "little secret" tucked away (and above) the beaten path along Highway 61 on the North Shore of Minnesota. About 2-3 miles north of Silver Bay, MN - you may miss the small sign if you are not looking for it. Just as you past a church on the right side (also called Palisade Head) -... 更多
The first time I had noticed the little sign for the overlook, or however it was listed, I was very pleased with the cool area once I drove up. I hadn't heard about it prior so was clueless it was here. I stop each time now I'm up this way. There is limited parking and a very sharp hill to... 更多
Palisade Head is definitely worth the few minutes it takes to drive up to the top and take in the view. If you hike further along the paths you can come right to the brink of the cliff and it can be dangerous for children. (This, of course, makes it more thrilling for kids, but you don't want them to... 更多
Very cool spot. Been coming here 50 years and have to see every time I go by. Shovel Point can be seen to the north from here. Hold onto your kids!!
