Come to Tettegouche for a great sense of the North Shore: the spectacular overlooks at Shovel Point; rocky, steep cliffs and inland bluffs; the cascading 60 ft. High Falls of the Baptism River; and the historic Tettegouche Camp where visitors can stay the night. This is a hiker's paradise with miles of trails that overlook the Sawtooth Mountains and wind down to inland lakes accessible only by foot. The Palisade Valley Unit features broad scenic vistas coupled with an expanse of multi-use, four-season trails. Two more trout lakes complement the fishing opportunities within the rest of the park. The park is also known for rock climbing opportunities and quality birdwatching in the spring, summer, and especially the fall.

great views once the hike is over.... muddy and visible water puddles along the way, so dress appropriately

Absolutely awesome. Nice mix of deep forest, higher elevation with views and lake/creek side stuff.

Really like this trail. A few tougher stretches along the way, but the views from the High Falls are definitely worth it!

Great scenery--falls are just as nice as Gooseberry but hiking is moderately harder. Trails are nice. Could use updated way finding as many signs are becoming hard to read. They are apparently doing trail maintenance and in those areas the trail was drier--other areas were very wet and muddy because of erosion and lack of gravel cover. Beautiful visitor center. Saw several bird species and amazing fungus and mushrooms everywhere. Be prepared to do a lot of ups and downs--lots of stairs. I saw folks hiking in tennis shoes but I was glad to have the ankle support of my heavy hiking boots.
