The majestic tall old pine trees make "Preacher's Grove Picture Perfect." A quick stop here is worth a few minutes. You will want to take some pictures. The site could use some maintenance.

In the early 20th century a group of preachers camped at the site and it has been named Preacher's Grove ever since.

Take a moment to stop and walk down to the view of Lake Itasca. The Red Pines are huge, the forest floor is flat and quiet, lush and green. Always a stop for me when I go to this park.
