Glen Avon Falls Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"For too many years I sailed along MN 61, anxious to get where I was going. The high-speed journey meant passing right by some of the North Shore’s hidden treasures. Glen Avon Falls is one of them. Travel over the ridge from Beaver Bay and you’ll see what I mean. From the quiet county highway, a nearly invisible “road” dribbles into the woods. Walk down the rutted, red-dirt path toward the Beaver River. The river flows from its headwaters in the Superior National Forest through remote woodlands and into this broad valley, flanked to the south and east by a high ridge of dark green forest.

Here at the base of the ridge, the river’s placid waters emerge from a shaded screen of pine and pick up speed with the onset of an impending drop in elevation. The upper reaches of this waterfall are a torrent of white, plunging 10 feet into a foamy boulder field."
