Manitou River Falls Minnesota North Shore

Here are some shots from the seldom seen Manitou River falls on Lake Superior near Highway 61. There are two main sets of falls between Highway 61 and the lake, the last set drops 40 to 50 feet directly into Lake Superior, making it one of only a few waterfalls that drop directly into Lake Superior.

The land from Highway 61 to the lake at the Manitou River is private and due to the high cliffs and private land the only way to view and access the base of the falls that directly fall into Lake Superior is by water craft. I have paddled to these falls by kayak from Sugar Loaf recreation area water access and it is roughly 5 miles one way.
