This is a beautiful park and there are many sights to see. You can easily spend a whole day here. Make sure that you check out Shovel Point.

We enjoyed the hike to the High Falls. The river was beautiful from the High Falls to the outlet into Superior. Loved watching the water flow over rocks and the fall areas.

We had never been up north this late -- no fall color, but the lack of leaves opened up more views.

We hiked to the little pebble beach where the river meets the lake with our 2-month-old in-tow. Once you get past the steps, the trail is wide and passable with a stroller (we have a Bugaboo Chameleon).
