I love this hike! It is a beautiful place. one does need to be careful for slippery rocks in places. I grew up hiking here when I was younger and just visited again this year.

The river gorge hike is a highlight on the North Shore.

Fairly easy hike along a tight and very interesting river gorge. Hidden Falls is the highlight, but the area above the falls is nice too. Don't get in a hurry on your way up the North Shore and miss this one.

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.

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.
