Owner description: Minnesota's tallest waterfall at 120 feet.
Reviewed 21 October 2013

What a great place to go to in the FALL. The colors were glorious, the bugs non-existent, the crowds virtually non-existent. We only saw about 10 people total on our hike to the Falls and back. We befriended 2 couples who were together and from other states and exchanged photo taking sessions - us of them and they of us. All around we were treated to unspoiled natural surroundings and able to leisurely walk the broad, asphalt walkway. The Falls themselves are awesome and it's so hard to believe they are right here in Minnesota!! The park service has built two places where you can actually go way out and view the Falls to the best advantage and are practically over the roaring water. Plus you can hear the roaring thunder -- it's so loud when it's that quiet there. You hear nothing but the water!! Across the roaring river is CANADA and like the USA, was lush and vibrant with colors of Fall season. This was the best time of the year to go and see this natural wonder.

We visited at the perfect time of year for the falls to be thundering with lots of snow melt and spring rains. We got soaked, even at the furthest observation deck! The half mile walk to the falls is very do-able as it is a paved pathway. Prepare for a Niagara Falls-like soaking! Bring a rain jacket, a hat, and if you are a photographer, lots of lens cloths!

The Falls were ROARING! What an incredible sight! It's awesome to be close to the falls and feel the mist!

This is a moderate 1/2 mile hike to a pretty nice water fall. The going is smooth with steps at the end.
