Our visit started out great with a quick trip to the Cascade State Park Headquarters. The Park Ranger on duty was very friendly and helpful and gave us a nice overview of the different hiking trails and also told us the best spot for a picnic lunch. We hiked the 3.5 mile Lookout Mountain Loop trail. The trail starts near the first cascading waterfall and continues up the river where you can see the other waterfalls. There is a nice foot bridge over the falls that allows for a great view of the river and waterfalls. The trail leads you to the top of Lookout Mountain where you have a great view of the forest and Lake Superior. The trail to Lookout Mountain is signed and the trail includes a steep climb to the summit.
The picnic spots are clean and are a quarter-mile south of Park Headquarters along Highway 61. The picnic tables are just a few yards from Lake Superior.
