Trestle Bridge Falls Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This is a great little hike before even taking a step. The trailhead happens to be near the mouth of the river, with horizon-stretching views of Lake Superior, and is a great place to skip rocks or watch waves rumble in.

Pass a series of small cascades on the way upstream, and then the fish ladder locations. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources used to conduct native fish breeding programs here; when they were big and strong, staff turned the fish loose and away they went. It’s still amazing to me how fish can climb ladders. The fern-lined trail is a scenic stroll through balsam and aspen woods."
