Short hike with some stairs. Free parking and restrooms. Definitely wear shoes and clothing you can get wet in... there is no resisting that water once you see It!

Not well marked from highway but found easily enough. Great shorter hike to Caribou Falls. Trail follows the river to the Falls & there are steps at the end. A nice quiet trail to a great waterfall.

Yet another fabulous river along the North Shore! Easy to park off the highway and walk to the river and falls.

Walk the quiet north shore woods. Lovely river, falls if you go far enough. Pine trees, fall colors, soothing to the soul.

If you are driving up Hwy 61 in search of waterfalls and hiking, be sure to stop at the Caribou Falls Wayside. The half-mile hike is fairly easy and the stairs down to the base of the beautiful waterfall aren't that bad. The view at...More

One of the activities directors at Bluefin Bay told us about the falls, as there is no sign on Highway 61 other than the Caribou River sign. There is a parking lot near the river, and a sign in the parking lot indicates the falls...More

This was a hike that a friend and I had been planning for months as a finale to a new healthier life-style - hike is considered an easy trail - it was breath-taking in many spots! Don't miss it if you are able to climb...More
