As further reinforcement of how beautiful this area is, on one of our visits there was a woman painting the landscape. I would love to see the finished product.
This picture shows how close the drops are, and gives a small look at how many there are. Cascade Falls is the gem here, but it's just the beginning. It's just over a mile to make the full loop, and as you can see it's more than worth the effort. The video below is from our visit in 2012 and I tried to give a good look of the entire loop.
The parking area for the falls is at mile marker 100 on highway 61 in MN, north of Lutsen and south of Grand Marais. The path goes straight up to Cascade Falls, then follow it uphill and off to the left, as it follows the river before crossing and heading down the opposite bank. The Wallingas' book Waterfalls of the North Shore (linked in upper right corner), first turned us on to these falls and provided excellent directions.
