From this area you will be able to see the breathtaking falls and capture the scene that has been painted and photographed by the best. Lots of opportunities to stand where you can get a picture of yourself standing in front of the famous falls, and glimpse into the past where others have stood for many decades. A must stop... More

I certainly wish I was an artist. This location is pretty enough to make you want to try but it would be hard to make anything look as good as the real thing.

You can get a good view of the Canyons and Upper falls from this point. The colors of the Canyons are beautiful. Taking binoculars with you will give you a nice view of the Falls.

On a nice day this is a beautiful spot to stop with a camera or a sketchbook. Unfortunately the day we were there it was drizzly and windy. Still, the view is stunning.

Beautiful scenery- beauty abounded! This was one of my favorite places in the park. The color of the entire area and the natural geothermal features were inspiring.

If you love the Minnesota north shore, this is a must see. If you are a painter, bring your supplies! If you are a photographer, bring your camera!

We came here several times, at different times of the day. The color of the cliff was totally different. The view is gorgeous.

Don't miss out on this beautiful view! Take the time to stop here. In fact, stop everywhere! There's thousands of hours of things to see.

True, this is something everyone does, but there's a reason for this. It's amazing! We got there early, and there were very few people around, which is nice so we could just take in the sights. We hiked the trail to the point, which has lots of bear from what I understand, so be sure to get some bear spray.

This is a gorgeous area. We stopped while on our Tauck winter wonderland tour. So beautiful in the winter with all the snow and few people around.
