North Shore waterfall season is officially here, according to Cook County’s website.
Cook County has the North Shore’s most dramatic waterfalls, including Devil’s Kettle Falls in Judge C.R. Magney State Park, the ephemeral “phantom falls” that pour from the cliffs lining Highway 61, and the High Falls of the Pigeon River in Grand Portage State Park.
At 120 feet, High Falls (below) is the highest waterfall in Minnesota: “Minnesota’s Niagara.”
A full map and “waterfall weekend road trip” ideas can be found on the Cook County website. And keep in mind there are more waterfalls up there than what is listed, so keep your eyes and ears open while hiking!
