Cascade River State Park Trails

mile 99.8

 

Length: 0.4 miles of trails
Difficulty: easy
 
This is a quintessential mini-hike — it’s under a half mile, it’s a loop, there’s a footbridge over the river, include cascades and waterfalls, cedar trees and tiny wildflowers. All this from a pullover off the highway means it makes for a worthy hike year-round. Wear boots in the winter and bring a trekking pole to help on the icy areas. Spend your extra time at the river mouth, throwing rocks, watching the river current move into the lake and taking in the immensity of Lake Superior.
