Exploring the Wonders of Gooseberry Falls State Park in Minnesota

Waterfalls, waterfalls, and more waterfalls is the main theme of this park! Hiking to, climbing through, or just relaxing by one of the many beautiful waterfalls is a great way to spend the day!

There are five waterfalls  located near the Highway 61 bridge and in the gorge. In this area, the Gooseberry River rushes over the 30-foot Upper Falls into a pool, then flows to the two-tiered Middle and Lower Falls, descends 60 feet to the last pool, and then runs through the valley to Lake Superior.

The lower and middle falls are a short walk from the parking area past the visitor center. A descent down several sets of steep steps is required to reach the falls area.

Once there, you can climb on the rocks and boulders and wade through the falls and pools.

 Continue hiking over the bridge to the other side of the river and under the highway bridge to get to the upper falls.


 Bathrooms, phones, water and picnic sites are located at the visitor center

The park has 18 miles of hiking trails. Park Map
