crashing waterfalls at gooseberry falls state park
The Four Falls of the Gooseberry River

Three falls are quite close by. Park at the Visitor Center and take the super easy, accessible hike to the most photographed of the falls, the expansive Middle Falls. Head south to view the Lower Falls or take a short accessible hike to the north, under Highway 61 that leads to the Upper Falls.

With a little bit of a hike, you can see the Fifth Falls. Continue .75 miles beyond the Upper Falls. Your reward – another glorious waterfall and far fewer folks.

Gooseberry Falls State Park is at Hwy 61 mile marker 39.5, northeast of Two Harbors.
