Superior Hiking Trail: Gooseberry River, The Nestor Grade, and Wolf Rock Professional Review and Guide

"The river is the main focus of this pleasant walk with over 2 miles of meanders, slumps, ox-bows, gravel beaches and bars (with nice agates), waterfalls, and potholes. See how the river changes as you walk downstream. The banks and old terraces are lined by a variety of wild flowers, and in the fall there is the added bonus of nice colors. At the start of the walk there are great views from Wolf Rock and Mike’s Rock and the ridge between them.

Over the three days since our Crow Creek hike, leaves have sprouted about as fast as the dandelions in my backyard, and the forest canopy has become denser and greener. This morning the breeze comes from the southwest, soft and light and filled to all its corners by singing birds. There are chickadees, finches, wrens, flickers, ovenbirds, and other warblers. What a difference sunshine, warmth, and the first bug hatchlings of the spring make."
