Gorgeous scenery and a not particularly challenging hike made this a lovely "entry level" hiking excursion for our first North Shore trip. Would highly recommend!

We did the roadside stop to see the falls that runs right under Hwy 61. We walked down the stairs on the Lake Superior side. Stunning! Minimal walking and stairs make this an easy stop.

People of average hiking ability can do this short hike and see several waterfalls typical of the north shore. Path is wide and well-defined, but has an expected amount of vertical climb.
