Gooseberry Falls State Park, Minnesota

gooseberry fallsGooseberry Falls is probably the most visited falls along the north shore and is an easy drive north from Duluth, which is an excellent city to start your north shore adventure in.



There are three falls – Upper, Middle and Lower Falls – on the Gooseberry River.  There is another falls, the Fifth Falls, which is a bit of a hike.gooseberry falls 2





There is both a set of stairs to take you down to the foot of the falls, as well as a walkway.  You will see a lot of people swimming, wading or, if the water is low, walking across the river at this point.
