Upper, Hidden & Lower Falls of Temperance River

Temperance River has carved out some stunning gorges over which flow the Upper Falls, Hidden Falls, and Lower Falls. To watch the Lower Falls tumble into Lake Superior, follow the short easy loop on the lakeside of the highway [.25 mile total]. Tucked deep into the narrow gap, the river dives into a pool just above the roadside parking. Get a peek there before ascending stone steps to the cliffside overlook [not necessarily family-friendly]. The trail continues riverside over smooth rock outcroppings and through cedar stands to the High Falls and footbridge that allows a return down the west side of the river. Before crossing, walk a bit further to admire the upper cascades. Less than 2 miles for all three waterfalls.
