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.

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

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

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.

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!
