Take a Spring Hike

mile 86.5

 

 
Pull into the Ray Berglund State Wayside on the north side of Highway 61 between Tofte and Lutsen. Climb the wooden steps and hike above the Onion River to view the stair-step waterfalls. You get a much clearer view of the waterfalls in the spring before the trees green-up, but this is a nice quiet, one-mile hike any time of the year. Lakeview picnic tables are on the bluff near the top of the stairs. Fisherman take note, the Onion River is a designated trout stream. Everyone take note of the swanky outhouse, [seasonal].
