Cook County Highpoint Trip Report
Date: July 25, 2007
Author: Thomas Harper
Right before I took up highpoint I bought a Mustang. I don't think it was meant
for all these dirt roads I've been traveling since but it has performed
admirably on these roads so far. I just hope for no rain.
There were many dusty roads to the Eagle Mountain trailhead. I hiked with a
couple from Rochester, Minnesota. They helped pace me on the way up.
Whale Lake at the halfway point has great photo opportunities.
Fifteen minutes before the summit views of the surrounding country become prevalent.
The last overlook is before the summit marker - it takes a little bit more
climbing to find. After taking in the great summit views of the lakes and woods
I headed back down.
