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 a few hours to take their time and just enjoy.

Be prepared because there are a lot of steps, but it's really amazing to see. Other than the large set up steps, it's a very easy trail and well kept.

We were doing a road trip around Lake Superior, (Great Vacation!). We stopped here to see some sights and do a little hiking. The park is off Hwy. 61 and very scenic. The trails are well maintained and signed. We did some hiking on some of the short trails and really enjoyed the park. One of the main trails here... More

This was a very cool waterfall located in the Judge C R Magney State Park. One half actually seems to disappear completely. Unfortunately you can't get a really good view of it from the trail. There is also a smaller falls along the trail that you can get very close too. Note however that if you don't like stairs don't... More

Recommended to us by locals, we were so glad we made the stop! A fabulous hike, even with 3 kids 10 and under. Due to lots of rain, the falls were amazing and raging! The kids wanted to hike the entire 14 mile loop....next time, because we'd love to come back. Lots of steps, just FYI in case that bothers... More

This was part of visiting the state parks along Highway 61. It was a beautiful morning and the temperature was hot enough to get a sweat on, leave the car park and cross the bridge to the start of the trail. From there it is an ascent of about a mile, including a drop down some timber steps then up... More
