“Simply gorgeous”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

This area is a river gorge inside Porcupine Mountains State Park at the southwest end. It's easily accessible with well maintained trails and has numerous gorgeous waterfalls. One of my favorite places in the U.P.

“This hike has it all”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

Waterfalls, moderately difficult terrain and a gorgeous hike up the river for a mile or so and then crossing over and walking down seeing all of the falls from several different views, almost nearing the end you can sneek down and sit on the beach of lake Superior. This hike has it all.

“Just Beautiful”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

Just loved this and came upon it after visiting the falls on the boardwalk including a suspension bridge. It was right near the end as it dumped into Lake Superior. What a beautiful place..we spent 45 mins collecting rocks. Loved it and so peaceful!

A great hike! Many beautiful falls, incredible sights, and Lake Superior. An easy hike. One could spend hours down at the "island" area at the mouth of the lake
