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.

Easy hike to beautiful falls!

This is such an easy hike, ending at the beautiful falls. Depending on water level, you can climb down a bit and every into the middle of the flow, but be careful it’s easy to slip!
