Intriguing because of its narrow gorge which has created many potholes along the bottom of the river.

The Temperance River Gorge is a must see stop on the North Shore. The river has a series of very large potholes and water falls. There is a short but steep climb to the best views; definitely worth the effort. The trails have recently been...More

We loved our stop here. The walk was so beautiful, the falls were awesome. We have not done this walk before, but we won't miss taking it again. Breath taking for sure.

I did the hiking club trail but turned around when I hit the password. The second half is really weedy. The views are beautiful, but I wouldn't recommend this state park for people who aren't sure footed.

Stopped here to view the waterfalls and came across 3 young men jumping into the middle of the falls! We couldn't help but stay and watch. When we left I told one of them that they were crazy. He just smiled and said they grew...More

This one is great because you can make it as long or as short of a hike as you want. You can go to the bottom where it meets Lake Superior, then hike up all along the gorgeous falls, and then hike on top along...More

This is a great place to hike for many skill levels. You can enjoy much of the scenery from just a few steps from the road but if you really want to see some amazing falls and what Nature has created for you, take a...More
