Schmidt Creek Falls

Schmidt Creek Falls Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This pretty falls is cocooned in a scenic glen of cedar and aspen. A very short trail leads to river level and close to the falls. Schmidt Creek tumbles down stairsteps of huge basalt boulders in a distractingly scenic glen of cedar trees and moss-covered roots and rocks.

After a final pair of short drops, the creek glides down a ramp of rock, pools, and then drifts onward to Lake Superior. Leaning back against a beefy white pine, I felt sure I had traveled to a fantasy world of wood elves and hobbits. This is an easy-access, count-on-it solitude place I’ll return to often."
