Nelsens Creek Falls— Gooseberry Falls State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A short jaunt inland from the big lake and into Gooseberry’s stately forests treats hikers to a secluded waterfall in a pretty glen of green ferns and mosses and bright white birch. On the Gitchi Gummi Trail, follow the left fork and climb the hill along stone-walled switchbacks. There is a great view of Lake Superior from the top of the hill. Pass the log shelter and the trail turns hard right, paralleling Nelsens Creek. Look for a skinny spur trail on the left and go that way.

The path drops steeply to creekside. With an overture of murmuring from a gathering of smaller cascades, the creek aims for a chute through a cleft in a huge heap of dark gray rock and sprays into a quiet pool below, rests a bit, and then tips over a final short drop to another pool."
