This is by far one of our favorite spots to enjoy the outdoors! So many things to do and see here, where to start?
Our normal hike takes us past the High Falls, down to the Two-Step falls in a loop past the Cascades, and back up the road to the parking area. Lots of stairs here if you want to see any of the falls up close.
Beautiful any time of year. We splash at the base of the water falls with our pup.
Shovel point and the shore line are both worth seeing on the other side, especially if you like to skip rocks and hunt for agates, sea glass, and other pretty treasures.
If you go by the cabins and beyond, the huge stone fire place on top of the "mountain" and the view from up there are both worth seeing. The shore line of Lake Superior on that side is quite different than the rest of the park. On a clear day, you can see Split Rock Light House.
Always see wildlife here. Deer, wolves, coyotes, eagles, beaver, rabbits, grouse, even a little mouse one winter. Fishing for salmon and trout. This place truly is amazing!
Insect repellent is a must. Definitely check for ticks. Not worse here than anywhere else in the area- just part of the North Woods.
