Caribou Falls Trail is located near Silver Bay in Minnesota’s Lake County. This is a 1.18 mile (1.9 km) out and back trail along the Caribou River that leads to the base of Caribou Falls and offers an excellent vantage point of Lake Superior and the gorge and falls of the river. The trail begins at a wayside rest area and along a portion of the Superior Hiking Trail up a set of wooden stairs to the falls. The stairs lead right down to the water, where you will find nice vantage points to photograph the falls. This is a pretty impressive 40 foot (12.2 m) waterfall that is easy to get to and less visited in comparison to other falls on Minnesota’s north shore.
