falls of the onion river
Stair Step Falls of the Onion River

Climb the wooden steps and hike above the river to view the cascades near the river mouth and the falls just upstream. The best falls view is before trees have leafed out when the river is gorged with snowmelt and rain. The hike includes the set of stairs from the parking area, and then is relatively easy, about a mile round trip.

Why the ‘Onion River?” Because of the wild onions, or ramps, that grow in the vicinity.

Access from the Ray Berglund State wayside at Hwy 61 mile marker 86.5, northeast of Tofte.
Enjoy the spanky outhouses!
