if you stick to the West River trail it's a boardwalk the whole way with a lot of stairs but gorgeous views of both Manabehzo and Manido Falls!

great short hike just to the outlook points. more trails leading down to the lake. great views!!

had a great time exploring! quite a few "off road" yrails you could follow to get rite down into the waterfalls. loved it!

Easy and fun.

Loved this trail! Beautiful waterfalls and wildflowers. Ended up by the lake around sunset. I loved seeing the river flowing into Lake Superior. Would definitely do this trail again.

beautiful waterfalls. love the simple catwalks to the different view points.

This is a trail from Lake Superior up to the road bridge (approx a mile) and then back down the opposite bank. The trail follows the edge of the bank very closely on the east side. Very steep, short climbs and descents close to the drop-off. When I was there 9-27-11 trail was wet and very slick. 2 mile trail took 2 hours to complete. River falls are great with some chances to get down to the river. Lots of photo ops, birds, old growth trees and quiet. Short tough trail but well worth the effort.

This was a challenging hike with the trail ending at the shores of Lake Superior. Some hikers choose to camp by the lake but we chose to hike out in the same day. It was tiring but very rewarding. The most challenging part of the hike is the amount of tree roots that you have to navigate over. There were long periods of time where you could not look up in fear of tripping. There are two areas of the trail where you have to cross over the river by jumping from rock to rock or if it's shallow you can walk through it and cool off your feet! One of several trails in the porcupine mountains worth doing!
