First Falls—Knife River

First Falls—Knife River Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The watershed of the Knife River is immense, with the West Branch of the Knife and the Little Knife River forming two long wishbone forks that poke far into the heavily forested land west of Two Harbors.

As the two forks join and become the Knife River proper, the river’s course resembles a child’s random scribbles, or a succession of tiny blue, pointy mountains on a map. The erratic route creates a quickly flowing stream with sections of rapids; steep, wooded cliffs; and waterfalls."
