Absolutely beautiful for hiking an scenery. Great place to walk with a dog. The scenery invited one to simply pause in places to meditate and soak up the views. I enjoyed the wildflowers along the way.

It wasn't in our plan to stop and see the Temperance River on our recent travel up the North Shore. On our way to Grand Marais, we saw a bunch of cars pulled over on the side of Hwy. 61 near Schroeder. The green sign said, "Temperance River". On our way back from Grand Marais, I told my husband to... More

First stop on site of the lake and see power of water coming to the lake, then walk short walk (maybe a mile) to see all the cascades and small pools and falls in small gorges. Very beautiful.

Temperance River State Park is yet another in a long line of beautiful parks along Minnesota's North Shore. This park is great for beginning hikers, as it's easy to get to. As you travel along highway 61, you can park just off of it and hike up towards the falls. It's a short round trip, and by going on the... More

This park is amazing!! With several waterfalls within the canyon and tremendous views, this park is one of the best on the North Shore. Once at the falls at the end of the canyon, keep going upstream. Another small canyon comes into view a ways up, with more small falls. Beautiful!!!

We spent a few hours hiking around the Temperance River, the gorges, Falls, and State Park. We hiked back to the hidden falls and it was amazing to be so secluded in Nature. We spent some time just sitting and enjoying the rushing water and marveling at it's beauty. Definitely time well spent!

It was pretty warm out so the snow was soft, but easy to walk if you had snow shoes. Stay on the path...the snow is very deep if you step off. Lots of deer to see!

The Temperance River has literally carved out a fantastic rock formation on it's way to Lake Superior. We always stop here to hike down river for a view. It is a quick stop because you just pull off the road and the best view is a short distance from the road. You can also hike on a trail inland. I... More

We got an great view of the rugged beauty of the area at this park. Just off Hwy 61 and within a short distance massive amounts of water from the river which was at a higher elevation came surging through a twisted gorge and over several waterfalls. The water fanned out to form a cove inlet to join Lake Superior.
