Gooseberry Falls is the gateway to the North Shore. It is known for its spectacular waterfalls, river gorge, Lake Superior shoreline, Civilian Conservation Corps log and stone structures, and north woods wildlife. Listen to the thunderous roar of the Upper, Middle and Lower Falls of the Gooseberry River as it plummets through a rocky gorge. Watch for waves, ships, or the moon rise on Lake Superior from an ancient lava flow known as the Picnic Flow. Hike or ski to see the Fifth Falls through a forest of evergreens, aspen, and birch, and enjoy camping in modern campsites, picnicking, and relaxing along the Lake Superior shoreline or the Gooseberry River. To get the most out of your visit, stop by the Joseph N. Alexander Visitor Center where you can find park information, interpretive displays, a park video, Nature Store, and more. Don't miss the Gateway Plaza for outdoor interpretive signs on area resources and history.

Gorgeous! Wasn't a hike, more like a scenic, elevated walk with loads of other people, but the views are amazing, and the area is beautiful. It's a closer-in trail, and so more easily accessible to those with a short amount of time and those who need something just off the highway. Very pretty, and we spent a good time longer there than anticipated because of the waterfalls. There is fishing also located off the trail.

had a great time. will go back when I have more time!

gorgeous views of gooseberry falls and lake superior. easy hiking and very well maintained trails.

Beautiful spring day

This is a wonderful area, the falls are great. The hiking path isn't usually to congested tourists usually stay by the falls. It's a nice loop, totally an easy hike.

There's a ton of sights to keep you occupied during this hike. Plenty of waterfalls, boulders, wooden bridges and walkways, and trees with gnarly branches and roots. I wasn't bored during any second of the hike. A warning for those of you hiking when the ice is melting: Do not cross the water over a slushy pathway. On a sunny day it will soon become a rushing river and you will be forced to forge the river and get freezing cold. One of the pictures I uploaded shows a man doing just that.

We were at the falls the day after ice out. WOW. I've never seen the falls or river so full! Would love to come back in the summer!

Had such a great time hiking here. Beautiful trails!

Beautiful hike!

Really pretty falls. I've gone several times, and will go again. The last trip I went on was my favorite, because it was raining. There was hardly anyone there!

You can't describe it. you just must see.

Beautiful area... Take the loop, it is amazing... Most people walk down to the lower falls n back, do the whole loop or your missing out.
