Middle and Lower Falls— Gooseberry Falls State Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Gooseberry is one of Minnesota’s most visited state parks, highlighted by five dramatic waterfalls, camping on Lake Superior’s shore, and nearly 20 miles of hiking, biking, and skiing trails. Access to the falls couldn’t be easier, by means of the visitor center and Gateway Plaza. The striking visitor center, constructed almost entirely with recycled materials, includes a nature store and trail center packed with information about the park and area history. Keep in mind that the park’s popularity, especially the waterfalls, brings in lots of people.
Some days visitors are scattered all over the rocks like so many ants at a honeybee picnic, and it can be a challenge just to get an unobstructed look at the falls. Take the time to see Upper Falls too, or take a short hike farther upstream to uncrowded Fifth Falls."
