Rushing river!

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

I'm reluctant to review Caribou Falls because it's a well kept secret that tourists haven't discovered yet. But it's one of the prettiest short hikes on the North Shore, ending at one of my favorite Minnesota waterfalls. Just don't tell anybody!

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

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 LOTS of stairs and love a beautiful view....
