This is a wonderful area, the falls are great. The hiking path isn't usually to congested tourists usually stay by the falls. It's a nice loop, totally an easy hike.

There's a ton of sights to keep you occupied during this hike. Plenty of waterfalls, boulders, wooden bridges and walkways, and trees with gnarly branches and roots. I wasn't bored during any second of the hike. A warning for those of you hiking when the ice is melting: Do not cross the water over a slushy pathway. On a sunny day it will soon become a rushing river and you will be forced to forge the river and get freezing cold. One of the pictures I uploaded shows a man doing just that.

We were at the falls the day after ice out. WOW. I've never seen the falls or river so full! Would love to come back in the summer!

Really pretty falls. I've gone several times, and will go again. The last trip I went on was my favorite, because it was raining. There was hardly anyone there!

Beautiful area... Take the loop, it is amazing... Most people walk down to the lower falls n back, do the whole loop or your missing out.

Went early spring in April for the early spring thaw hoping to still see some ice caves along Superior shore as well as the Gooseberrry river trail. Good hike lots of action on the river.

This jewel of MN State Parks has many miles of hiking trails of varying challenge, from single foot-path to wide grassy trails, making it very family friendly. The well known water falls (upper, middle and lower falls) and great Lake Superior shoreline make this a must stop along the north shore, bringing crowds almost year-round, yet worth it. The campgrounds are excellent, the park has many great stone buildings from the conservation corps, and it is located near many other north shore attractions. Needs to be on everyone's to-do list.

It's a state Park so, it's a busy place. But it's beautiful to see the falls and follow it out to Lake Superior.
