Beautiful and easy hike!

The construction is complete and the hike is easy. Beautiful views of the falls and canyon. There is also an access trail to the North Country Trail off the path to the falls. It is well marked.

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.

The good part of the trail was under construction so you couldn’t see anything. I’m sure it’s cool when it’s open

Easy trail, can go down around the falls beautiful hike

Hiked the east trail from the south boundary road. You can park there near the bridge and get on the trail there. It’s a beautiful hike along the river and falls. The east trail is more rugged than the west trail but not difficult. Moderate would be an appropriate rating in my opinion. Hike this trail to Lake Superior and back and you will have gone appropriately 2 1/4 miles. One of my favorite hikes. Our dogs love it

Really great, easy hike through the woods. Beautiful all the way through and the views of Superior at the end are amazing! Perfect for a quick trek.

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.

Easy trail to very nice waterfalls. They were constructing a staircase to the bottom of the falls when we were there (8/29/18).

Easy trail - slight hill down to the top of the falls. Unfortunately, they are currently rebuilding the stairs to the bottom of the falls and have the stairs and west loop of the trial closed (August 2018). Looking forward to seeing it in the spring when the water is flowing harder.

Awesome trail to hike and the waterfalls are gorgeous. One side of the trail has lots of ups/downs but has better spots for taking pictures. The other side of the trail is mainly boardwalk. Definitely worth checking this trail out if you’re visiting the Porcupine Mountains.

Beautiful waterfall!

This loop map is incomplete! This only shows the road and the West river trail. There is a matching East river trail on the other side that is definitely worth the hike! Refer to the paper maps passed out at the entrance to see both loops. I highly recommend going North (toward the lake) for the East Trail. It has some very steep embankments that would have been torture to climb up but were okay to go down ;) Lots of stairs and boardwalks on the West river side, more rustic on the East side.

1) this map doesn’t show there is an east and west trail. Make sure to do both sides of the river. 2) they give you a paper map at the entrance which shows the east trail. 3) start with the west trail to learn about the waterfalls.

Great trail, nice scenery. Pleasant hike.

The walk is very easy here, you can even walk up the waterfall if it is shallow enough. One of my favorite waterfalls!

Stumbled acrossed the falls on our way back from a trip to cadott wi. Was prefect spot to get out and stretch our legs was easy walk nice trail really enjoyed it. When we got to the tallest falls there was a family there that told us they just watched some kayakers go over the falls their boys were real excited about that would have been cool to see. Here this week going to stop again on our way back to cadott and try and find some others to stop at on way back.

Pretty easy hike. The waterfalls were really cool to see and lots of easy paths.

Beautiful. West trail easier and more groomed than the East side . All the Waterfalls are stunning.

Gorgeous waterfall views. Some sections of the East River Trail are closed but remaining path is in good condition. Small amounts of up/down, I would rate it on the easier side of moderate.

The upper falls trail is spectacular. The waterfalls as well as the rock formations. Beautiful place

Did this hike with my wife and daughter and loved it. Beautiful scenery, not too difficult (wife was 5 months pregnant when we did it). Will definitely be doing it again.

Great time to visit (spring), the water flow is heavy and a spectacular sight. May not be able to park in parking lot due to poor road conditions, but only a short jog from the main sign.

Make sure you walk down the staircases to the bottom for the best views.

The walk to the top of the falls was easy and the trail was well maintained. The waterfall is impressive and worth the walk. I would suggest taking the stairs down to the bottom of the waterfall to get the opposite view.

A good trail for you and your dog. River is very powerful and in the summer time people go rafting here which is amazing to see. If it’s raining some of the massive rocks on the trail can be slippery.

Beautiful any time of year
