The Temperance River is a great spot for a short or extended hike up river. We only went as far as the falls and Cauldron. But when the water is really running after a good rain, this is a neat spot to check out.
very well maintained trails with great views of river, waterfall, and lake superior. Carlton peak is a must for any hiker.
For MN hiking at lower elevations this is moderate difficulty but if you are used to high elevation hiking it is easy.
Great view of the river.
4 stars for Minnesota, rare long-distance views from the top. One can see far to the north, Lake Superior to the south, and even Wisconsin on a clear day. Fun most any time of year. Swimming on the Temperance is good on hot days.
