double waterfalls of the split rock river during summer water is low

 

Hike the Split Rock River

mile 43.5

 

 
Walk up the west side of the trail high above the river past rock cliffs. If the water is low, walk through the river and continue on the east side for river valley views and Lake Superior overlooks ending back at Highway 61. You can up and back either side of the river, too. There's a nice cobblestone beach at the river mouth, too.
