The view from atop Palisade Head with its beautiful shoreline features is quite breathtaking; the view from Lake Superior as seen from a kayak can be equally dramatic. Palisade Head rises more than two hundred feet above the lake and is home to the peregrine falcon. Paddle through beautiful sea caves, over gigantic boulders with a view relatively few have seen.
