Temperance River State Park
Adobe Flash Player
Take the trail that winds along the edge of the Temperance River gorge and enjoy the rushing waterfalls surrounded by pine, spruce, cedar and birch forests. The rapidly flowing river has cut deep potholes in and along the riverbed. Hike the trail to Hidden Falls or connect up with trails into the Superior National Forest and the Cross River Wayside. Visitors come to camp and picnic along the shore of Lake Superior. Winter brings cross-country skiers and snowmobilers to tackle the hilly terrain. Carlton Peak, a recent addition to the park, is popular with rock climbers and offers even more recreational opportunities to park visitors.
Tell me more about this park's wildlife, history, geology and landscape.
You will still find some snow in the woods around Temperance River but spring is beginning to arrive. The river has started open up and the water is racing through the gorge but you will want to watch out for icy patches on the trails.
