The walking path takes you through one of the more developed sections of the North Shore. Despite the near-constant presence of taconite operations, highways, and towns, this section offers dramatic views from high anorthosite, basalt, and diabase ridges, as well as a pleasant walk along the Beaver River and its many rapids and falls. What a difference a day makes. The first time Judy and I walked this section it was cold, bone-chilling cold for the 5th of June. The temperature was 47 degrees with rain falling steadily out of a lead grey sky. The second time was on April 26th the following year, and it was sunny and 60 degrees–a glorious day for a really nice walk.
