Beaver Bay, Minnesota
The thundering Beaver River Falls can be partially seen from Highway 61 near the small town of Beaver Bay. These falls make an excellent addition to any Lake Superior Circle Tour or North Shore waterfall trip, and are especially beautiful at high water. They were still impressive on our first visit, but when we came back in June 2012 the water was high and roaring, making for a splendid panorama. The best vantage point is found from a trail near the large parking lot at Lax Lake Rd. The falls drop in so many sections at times it is hard to get the entire thing in frame!
Overall: Good to Great
