Gooseberry Falls State Park Trails

mile 39.5
Length: 18 miles of total trails Difficulty: easy & accessible to most difficult due to length Amenities: Visitor center has restrooms, lobby with a fireplace, and during open hours a gift shop, theater and exhibits

 

The beauty of of the park is steps from the Visitor Center, and sometimes on the way to the center, like these deer just off the path from the parking lot. A brief, paved, accessible path leads to the oft-photographed 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. This makes Gooseberry an ideal stop for everyone! Take advantage of the displays, restrooms and gift shop inside, then head to the river. The park has an abundance of inland trails, too.
