This is a spectacular viewing hike. If you manage to go in the fall, when the leaves are turning, you are in for a treat. This hike was my welcome to Minnesota, and I am glad. The hike involves 15 unrelenting flights of stairs going down (which means going up on the way out), as well as plenty of other sets of steps. If someone in your party might have difficulty with the elevation changes, consider carefully. There are a few benches along the way.

I wouldn't say this trail is 'easy'. It's a clear path most of the way but there are 200ish stairs one needs to climb both in and out to see the Devils Kettle. However, the cauldron is beautiful and no one knows where the water goes that actually goes into the cauldron. Strange???
