“Awesome waterfall!”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

We took the half mile walk to High Falls. The falls were simply breathtaking! The first viewing area we reached was wet from the mist and spray rising from the bottom of the falls. The 2nd and 3rd viewing areas were dry and we got some great photos of the falls and the rainbows it created.

“Check out the High Falls”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

It's an easy hike to the High Falls. You don't need to be a experienced hiker. We took a 4 year-old with us, and she did just fine.

“Great 1st Time Visit”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

The trip up and through the forest, fort, and Falls area was fantastic. Took the tripod the motorcycle from Grand Marais and thought the views were more spectacular then from Duluth to Grand Marais.
