Nice walk only one tree across trail just before rock

This was an awesome hike for winter, if you walked inside the actual gorge. The river is mostly frozen over and provides a completely different kind of hike. It wasn’t a hard hike, but wasn’t for the faint of heart as sometimes as you could see the water flowing under the ice. Wearing ice cleats helped a lot too.

I love this trail! the terrain changes alot and I love the rolling hills surrounding you. the rock is a lot bigger than I thought too!! beautiful during the fall!

It's a short hike but it's so beautiful! we went in the fall which made it that much more breathtaking!

Nice views.

Easy and beautiful. I need to bring my Chacos next time, definitely wished I could have hiked in the gorge/river.

Short steep hike. Worth it for the views at the top

Nice trail, with some cool areas around the river.

So beautiful so see Minnesota's "Stonehenge". Blueberries EVERYWHERE!!!!! Trail is quite rugged - takes about an hour to get from road to rock.

Nice quick hike for families with kids. Not many river views, but can always hear water, which is nice. Well maintained trail.

Great Hike, went with my family ages ranged from 3-57 all really enjoyed it. Make sure you take the little offshoot trails down to the river they are awesome!

Saw a pink lady slipper, and other wild flowers. The monolithic magnetic rock does indeed mess with a compass needle. Nice views along the way too. Good family hike!

Great view! Time to arrive at aunset. Easy short trail with steps to the top.

My wife and I enjoyed this very calm trail. You are next to the Kadunce River the entire time. There are nice little spots off of the trail where you can take in a cool view of the cliffs, water, and the fall trees. We even saw a little cave that had a really cool campfire at the mouth.

Fantastic views of Lake Superior, the rock formations, as well as the town once you reach the top. It's a short trail however you'll be impressed with the results.

Delicious blueberries, a babbling brook, some beautiful nature and a giant rock that will mess with your compass. Can't ask for more than that out of less than a 3 mile round trip hike!

Easy, quick hike, interesting topography through an area burned by recent forest fires. The views, magnetic rock and wild blue berries (at the right time) make it worthwhile.

This is an amazing Minnesota hike. Probably the only thing it's missing is a good climb. The landscape is amazing and there are exceptional views on every step. Not too strenuous either. Well worth the travel up the trail.

Go to the shoreline of superior and start walking from the mouth of the stream. There are 6 waterfalls within a little over a mile that are great fun to climb.

This becomes a very difficult adventure in the spring due to "healthy waterfalls".

The locals told us to climb this trail thru the river! We started up it - climbed several waterfalls! So much fun!!! You will be wet the entire time!

I spent the night in this beautiful spot. After not seeing a human for a few days of canoeing this was culture shock! Every campsite was full. But a group from Iowa invited me to pitch my tent in their area. As much as I had enjoyed the sollitude, it was nice to be hanging out with a bunch of great people.
