Owner description: Waterfalls and a multilevel boardwalk make this river at Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park worth seeing.

If you have limited time in the Porkies but want to experience a good hike- the east and west river trail of the Presque Isle river is the hike for you. Be sure to continue on to the mouth of the river on the shore of Lake Superior. We always hike in a picnic and have it at the mouth when we are done hiking. Take your time and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Keep your eyes open for the bald eagles. You will need to wear good shoes- no flip flops or sandals. Don't forget your camera.

The hike is quite easy although it does involve a number of stairs up and down. Take both hikes (to the falls and to the bridge over to the isle). It is really beautiful.

Great trails and views, and fairly easy hikes. WE walked both sides of the river and all the way down to Lake Superior over the suspension bridge.

While we were visiting, we got caught in a cloudburst. While my wife was running back to the truck see almost ran into a deer that was running the opposite direction

Paths are very well marked, but beware that it is approximately a 1/2 mile of stairs and hills. Well worth the walk but good shoes and water are a must! Mostly through woods so have some good insect repellent and layers of clothes for hiking and you should be all set. The falls offered amazing pictures and views to Lake Superior!
