Went October 12th. Leaves were 60% done so there were a lot of colors in the trees and a very colorful wooded ground. Beautiful!
Beautiful view of Supirior a couple minute hike from the parking lot.
hike is 8-9.1 miles from Castle Danger Road to Gooseberry falls. Then 8-9.1 mile hike back over the same path to where you parked.
We hiked 16-18 miles round trip. We hauled it and competed it in 8 hours with a total of 12 minutes of breaks. Very sore legs the last 5 miles.
Lots of mud. Lots. Be prepared for that.
Well marked and easy to follow. Loved It!

Gooseberry was cool, checked out the falls and took a day hike.
