North Shore Waterfalls

North Shore Waterfalls

North Shore waterfalls can be enjoyed anytime of the year, but did you know that there is a waterfall season? In the spring, increased water flow from snow melt and heavy rainfalls create beautiful cascading falls all over the area. You can see several sprout out of nowhere as your drive along Highway 61, especially in the area between Two Harbors and Grand . The waterfalls in the State Parks also come to life with increased water flow.

If you love waterfalls, you’ve come to the right place. There’s even a waterfall checklist that you can print off and use to discover all of our beautiful falls during your next North Shore visit. Some require hiking in one of our many state parks, while others are able to be enjoyed right from highway bridges or short, easy hikes.
