About this Waterfall

This is one of the best waterfalls along the north shore of Lake Superior. It's not well advertised, has no development and most people would drive right on by without even knowing that it existed. But it is a true gem, and best of all, only a 5 minute (or less) hike from Highway 17. Mink Creek itself is not a big watercourse, but due to the particular shape of the rock face, the waterfall appears much bigger and wider than would be expected.

The narrow creek spreads out over an expanse of rock that is perhaps 20-25 m across, while falling maybe 8-9 m. A small cascade is located upstream and another about 50-75 m downstream. Both are much smaller than the main falls, but in height and width.
