Falls of Caribou River Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"There are so many waterfalls in this guide that make the “author favorite” list that I hesitate to keep adding to it, but Caribou Falls is a lock for one of the all-time best. From the humble trailhead tucked in a pocket of woods along MN 61, hikers are treated to another fabulous stroll on the Superior Hiking Trail (SHT), following close to the whispers of the Caribou River.

After a short trek the trail heads up a steep climb toward an overlook with stop-in-your-tracks views of Lake Superior. Split off on the spur trail to the left, descending a long stairway to river level at the base of the falls."
