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.

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.
