Houghton Falls State Natural Area  (4 person minimum)

$25  $10 for each addtional person over people 4 people in your group. (2 hours)

Houghton Falls protects a picturesque pre-Cambrian sandstone gorge along the Lake Superior shore. The dramatic sandstone cliffs extend into the clear waters of Lake Superior, affording views of the Apostle Islands. The gorge is shaded by second-growth hemlock, yellow birch, white cedar, along with a few, large white pine. Along the upper canyon are cliff shelves that have protected, and still support Canada yew, a favored shrub of deer. At the north end of the ravine, overlooking Lake Superior, a series of sandstone points dominated by white and red pine, drop dramatically 15 feet to the water. A stream meanders through the site cascading over the exposed sandstone before descending over 60 feet into a rippled sandy cove at Lake Superior.

 

Lost Creek Falls  (4 person minimum)

$25  $10 for each addtional person over people 4 people in your group. (2 hours)

Lost Creek Falls is a very scenic waterfall located in the woods south west of Cornucopia. The falls consists of an 8′ plunge with a few feet of cascades above and below the plunge. You can walk behind the falls, which is not common for waterfalls around Lake Superior. There is a small 3′ cascade a short distance downstream of the main waterfall.  The flow is best in May and June but the trail is lined with raspberries, thimbleberries, black berries, and more. If you visit at the right time of year, we will have plenty to snack on.
