This was one of my favorite spots that we visited on the North Shore this trip! The river is beautiful, the hike down was easy. Not accessible though. Stunning rapids and fun place to pick rocks.

From the visitor center, take the short hike down to the mouth of the Baptism, where it dumps into Lake Superior. Nice spot for agate hunting, fishing, dipping your feet in the cool water, or just chilling out.

Did not encounter many other hikers at the mouth of the river. The hike of ~ 1.5 miles to the the falls is well worth the effort but could tire you out if you are used to hiking and doing lots of stairs,

Part of the Superior Hiking Trail system, it's a beautiful, scenic area, with lots of photo opportunities.

Totally enjoyed the Cascades Trail to the Baptism River. The path led through wildflowers and followed the river all the way to the rocks that formed the Cascades. A manageable hike on an unusually hot summer day in Minnesota.
