This is such a beautiful and extended falls that makes you want to stay and enjoy the beauty. It is a long walk from the parking lot but well worth the trip.

Nothing to dislike except the walk back!!! I could go on walking and walking. Love to take photos and see the changes from year to year. I always find something new to learn!

So glad we stopped! Took the hike from the falls to Lake Superior, very nice path. Kids playing near the falls , in the water, on the beach of the lake. Wild flowers along the path, birds, trees..........just a pleasant time .
