We took a hike along the waterfalls! It was absolutely stunning. We were there after leaf peak season (Oct 27th-31st), so I can only imagine how much more beautiful it would have been had we came a little earlier on in the month.

It is a little bit of hike to get back to the falls...but it so beautiful. So peaceful...it is definitely worth it!

A family favorite since I was little. Great trails, spectacular falls. Try the trail off road NFR343, Connects to Superior Hiking Trail. Good view of falls, river, and away from it all.

The beautiful Temperance River thunders through the amazing gorge in Temperance River State Park. Easy to navigate trails lead to the river's mouth and a cobblestone beach. Bring your camera!

Temperance River State Park is an incredibly beautiful place to stop to spend a day or camp for longer. The gorgeous rocky beach area and trails through the park to view the falls make this a wonderful place to enjoy this beautiful area.

Loved all of the parks that we were able to get too. So different from our neck of the woods in Georgia. Rocky shoreline, of course, you can't go wrong in this area.

Do not miss this park if you come to the area. You can park on the highway and then hike down to the mouth of the river and then hike up the gorge to the top. It's not a difficult hike at all. Very good trails and well maintained. We were on awe the whole time and loved it!

The old lava flows along the north shore of lake superior are cut by a series of rivers with fantastic names like: Baptism, Cut Face, Gooseberry, Sucker, Brule and Temperance. The latter is a great place for hiking. There a two gorges and the river rages so fast down the mountain that there is no sand bar at its entrance... More

We'd already seen some waterfalls, but the activities director at our hotel recommended this park, and said we'd really enjoy it. That we did. It has nice roadside parking, which is free, and the early part has easy access. We actually did the lower part of the falls, where the river dumps into Lake Superior. It was truly beautiful and...

I've been to over 60 of Minnesota's State Parks this year and with the possible exception of Gooseberry Falls, this is the greatest State Park in Minnesota for sheer beauty and awe inspiring sights. For this hike you need only park at the wayside rest area for Temperence river state park. The whole hike to see the wonders of the... More
