We really enjoyed this hike. There are areas that are uphill or have steps, but after each uphill section it levels off a bit before going up again - so it is very do-able. There are a number of steps going down at the end...More

Gorgeous falls! Extremely rigorous uphill hike to the falls. Seriously uphill from the start. Then 120 stairs, plus steep wooden ramps to go down near the falls. The falls are breathtaking and the accomplishment of getting there outweighs the heart-pounding hike there. On the way...More

Nice hike to view this water mystery! Be prepared for a lot of stairs though, other than that it's really cool and awesome trails and environmental scenery around that entire area.

Amazing site to see on the North shore. The hike, although only a mile long, is hard- a lot of uphill and down hill. Manageable, as we did it and we are out of shape, but the legs were like Jelly when it was done....More

1 hour from Thunder Bay I always wanted to visit this beautiful spot. It is definitely something that you have to see in your lifetime. Beautiful nature walk but a difficult hike in for people out of shape. It is worth the work just to...More

The hike to Devil's Kettle falls is one of the more strenuous hikes of the waterfalls along the North Shore. It's roughly one mile each way and that includes a lot of stairs. It's definitely manageable though as our 6-year old daughter managed it. The...More

it was a good break from driving. The falls were a lot bigger than they look in the picture. There was a huge staircase to climb but overall the hike was moderate difficulty. Would recommend

This is a very well maintained trail. The steps are not easy but just take your time and you will be ok. Not for small children. The view is amazing and worth the walk into the Falls. I would recommend this to anyone who has...More
