Beautiful trail. Heavily trafficked though. If you have time, take the trail starting at by the campgrounds and follow the cliffs against Lake Superior and up the side of the river for the best panoramic. Just going through the parking lot and to the falls is all paved and doesn't really count as a hike in my opinion - or as a real visit to what the park as to offer. This park has more than just the main falls; check it all out!

Gorgeous! Wasn't a hike, more like a scenic, elevated walk with loads of other people, but the views are amazing, and the area is beautiful. It's a closer-in trail, and so more easily accessible to those with a short amount of time and those who need something just off the highway. Very pretty, and we spent a good time longer there than anticipated because of the waterfalls. There is fishing also located off the trail.

This is a wonderful area, the falls are great. The hiking path isn't usually to congested tourists usually stay by the falls. It's a nice loop, totally an easy hike.
