Awesome trail! Devil's Kettle is so mysterious and you just can't stop looking at it - once you take the 100s of stairs to reach it, of course! The stairs are treacherous, but weren't as bad as people had said! Worth the hike if you're able.

Wonderful trail. There were A LOT of people there at the time we visited, but the views were stunning and the Devil's Kettle is a must see for anyone. Prepare for some elevation change.

Love this trail, great to hike through the deep, green Minnesota woods with the rushing river sound beside you! It's easy to mistake the Little Kettle for the big one, so definitely go the extra 700 feet. The 180 steps may not be for everyone, including one dog I saw who simply refused to budge halfway up the long staircase. Beautiful campsites here as well, if you're so inclined.

I got lucky on this day! Gorgeous day it was. Water level was low in the rapids so I was able to make my way out and stand in the between the falls and the Devil's Kettle, and then sit there for about 45 mins. without no interuptions. Great trail also.
