Some steep terrain but mostly moderate. Great views of Lake Superior at multiple points towards the beginning. Even better views on the scenic overlook spur, you can see Isle Royale on a clear day. The falls themselves are a good spot to stop for lunch, keep your eye out for boundary markers on the rock out croppings. The sign at the beginning of the trail advises against going in the water due to leeches and giardia which was unfortunate.

Hiked this trail with wife and adult children on a beautiful day in May 2018. At the highest elevation there are great views of Lake Superior. The destination is the Middle Falls on the Pigeon River and it's not nearly as dramatic as the High Falls. Found a boundary marker on the US side of the river. So I guess technically we were in Canada when standing on the outcrop in the river. It took us 2 hours and 15 minutes with some rest along the way.
