Description

This Superior Hiking Trail spur provides access to Caribou Falls and can also be accessed from the Caribou Falls State Wayside parking lot on MN-61. The trail will lead you through beautiful forests alongside the Caribou River to a rough metal staircase brings hikers down to the bottom of a gorge. Once at the bottom of the gorge, you can drop your stuff and enjoy the base of a beautiful waterfall.

Pictures never do this waterfall justice. As you descend the stairs into the gorge where Caribou Falls resides, you'll stand in awe of the wonder that towers before you.
