My wife and I stopped on our way north and unexpectedly made an afternoon out of our visit. Made it to both falls and the cascading river. There are some difficult parts to the walk but the views are well worth it.

Great hike, even w/ young kids. You can swim at the upper falls. Some people were cliff jumping. Great hike, rougher than expected trail but nothing that we couldn't handle. Gorgeous!

My 10-year-old and I hiked to the falls and thoroughly enjoyed the entire hike. The falls are beautiful and the old suspension bridge was entertaining. We thought this was an easy and fun hike with a lot of stairs. The visitor center is clean with knowledge staff.

Loved the hike! Lots of stairs to climb, but worth it. The falls are beautiful. Was one of the highlights of our trip!

Palisade Head and the mouth the Baptism River are the most accessible places to hike. Shovel Point and the falls will require some longer hiking. The interior of the park is mostly accessible by foot where there are plenty of scenic overlooks. Cabins are available for rental and there are some cart in campsites. The visitor center is really new... More

Beautiful hiking on the Superior Hiking Trail, esp the High Falls area. It has a variety of terrain.

The park does not have good signage. The entrance, if you are coming from Duluth is just after the Baptism river bridge. The high falls is a good hike 2 hrs with kids. Be prepared to go up and down hundreds of steps.

We have hiked the trails before, but we had not been on the east side of the park. This time we did go up to Shovel Point. The views are amazing. Looking forward to coming back and seeing the new park building.

This is a beautiful, scenic trail. It winds along a river through the woods. The hike isn't too strenuous. The view is awesome. This trail is well worth one's time.

This was our first time here and we stopped at the information center at the beginning of the park. They were very nice and helpful. One nice lady showed us on a free map all of the waterfalls and trails we could take. She also told us about the 3 lakes you can hike to and rent canoes at. I... More
