Beautiful in the winter as well! Great views of Lake Superior, a true trail through the woods. We did it with snow shoes and it was and incredible experience. Good for when it snows because the woods keep you fairly dry and it just gives an even more lovely winter effect.

Beautiful views. Relaxing with few hikers in the morning and early afternoon.

Beautiful and easy hike!

Great hike with a beautiful waterfall. Bonus cemetery at the entrance

Great hike out to the sea caves. About 1.8 miles out with 0.7 miles on easy to traverse wood planks.

Beautiful sight! Love the South Shore and looking forward to doing it again.

Beautiful view of the falls. It’s an easy hike. I was disappointed to have to leave my dog with my husband while I hiked the trail alone and did the same for him. Rules are rules....even though I saw several people take their dogs and ignore the signs.

Very easy hike. I’d have to say that after hiking Meyers Beach and Lost Creek falls this was my least favorite. I think this would be a great hike for families with younger kids. Fairly easy and well
Maintained.

Excellent moderate hike. There are a lot of small hills which is why this is considered a “moderate.” In some cases it’s almost easier to just walk alongside some of the stairs that have been built. There were a lot of families on this hike who seemed to be managing just fine. The views at the end at spectacular. Keep a close eye on younger hikers at the end of the trail.

Very easy hike. Falls at the end are great. These falls are similar to Twin Falls locates just outside of Port Wing. Be careful on the way out and make sure you end up on the same trail you walked in on. We ended up on the ATV trail on the way but but fortunately it intersects with the actual trail.

Easy couple hour hike. Amazing views of the shorelines and caves. Fun trail and lots of places to set up a hammock to relax along the way.

Beautiful! Very well maintained trails with informative signs. There is a wheel chair accessible portion that gives you great views of the falls or you can continue on a loop that allows views of al the Falls. Be aware there are a lot of steps.

Beautiful area, river and falls worth seeing. It’s not much of a hike except when going off trail to get to the waters edge (requires minimal climbing on the upper Falls trail to the water).
Be prepared for stair steps- there are about 150 on the upper Falls trail and similar on the lower.

If your kayak trip gets canceled or postponed, this a good hike even in the rain!

Bay view trail pretty even in rain. Dogs not allowed on Boardwalk.

Beautiful waterfall!

Great hike-go past the bowls to see the rest of the coastline-out and back 5 miles!

Cool, bring your walking stick for your old knees

Great multi-generational hike, plus our dog was in his element. Easy-moderate hike. Very lovely falls and forest.

Easy access trail with a beautiful waterfall at the end!

We hiked this trail a few days ago. Most of the trail was under a tree canopy and about the first mile was boardwalk. After that, there were some ups and downs and parts of the trail were rocky. When the trees opened so we could view Lake Superior and the sea caves, it was incredible. We went only a little bit past the caves for a total round trip of about 3.5 miles.

Nice views and easy trails

The map above is a picture of the trail to Morgan Falls. The trail to St. Peter's dome is much longer, almost 2 miles out, 4 round trip.

The trail is closed but the road is open. We did the hike and it was muddy in a few places. This is the buggiest trail ever. It was miserable and we couldn't even stop to take pictures without being swarmed, and that was with bug spray.

Lovely well maintained trail to the magical Lost Creek Falls. Pretty easy overall, a bit steep for the last 1/4 miles to/from the falls. I live nearby and hike it probably 4/5 times per month.

Great hike. Beautiful scenery and trail is very well maintained.

Beautiful trail through woods and along beach. Easy boardwalk trail takes you from one park to another with bathrooms at the end up the hill. (We walked to the Town Park side). However, on our trail guide this is listed as Boardwalk trail (1 mile each way).

Pretty great views but my only complaints are that: (1) the trail becomes just impossible to follow after the caves with zero trail markers the whole time that I eventually had to turn around with fear of being lost and (2) the lack of fencing around the caves would make it extremely dangerous to bring small children. That being said, the trail was overall very easy walking, only a few spots where I had to take big step ups/step downs, moments where the trail was slippery, but overall a nice, enjoyable trial! Lots of tree coverage from the sun, cute little streams to enjoy, nice openings where you can enjoy the lake and it’s expanse, and pretty decent teaser views of the caves.
