After an easy 0.5 mile hike from the visitor center at the state park a person can view these truly magnificent and gorgeous falls. The small hike is definitely worth the view.

We went hiking to the falls and they are wonderful in the winter. It was a lovely day with a gentle snow falling. Great view.

The trail was easy to follow and were maintained. The falls were beautiful. One of the better falls on the North Shore. There was no fee. What for the geese in the road and keep an eye on the Border, the entrance is right before the border and it comes up quickly while driving.

What a hidden gem. And a free park, to boot! Definitely worth the hike in to see these breathtaking falls. Two beautiful vantage points to look out over the falls. Take time to walk to them both.

On our way to Canada, and this was a nice surprise for us. A half mile hike to the falls to relieve driving fatigue and beautiful scenery. Also, lots of informational plaques along the walk about the lives of the Ojibwe Indians. The path is paved and has benches, so should be accessible to most. There are stairs at the... More

Only a half mile easy walk from visitor center to these impressive falls. Right after you cross border from Canada. Good to stretch your legs after driving.
