Hike to Kawishiwi Falls

1.5 Miles Total - Loop Trail

Originally added by Allison Herreid

A short, easy hike just outside Ely to a scenic waterfall. 

The trail to Kawishiwi Falls begins at the parking lot and winds through a wooded trail with minimal elevation gain. There are several different vantage points of the falls that are accessible from the trail (above, below, and from the side). The trail is also part of the portage between Garden and Fall Lakes. The trail is very easy and can be enjoyed by people of all ages.
