The Shallows – Minnesota

The Shallows Waterfall
The Shallows is the biggest and best waterfall found in Lester Park.  It is also the most difficult to get to. The downside is the Shallows is nice but pales in comparison to some of the other waterfalls that can be found in the area.  Still it is nice. The Northshore of Lake Superior is truly a blessed area for waterfall hunters.  Just a short flight of rocky stairs to see this scenic 45-foot waterfall.
The Shallows Stairs
A little bit more difficult to find than the other waterfalls of Lester Park.  The park is located at the fork of two bodies of water.  Most of the waterfalls are located on the west side of the park along Amity Creek.  The Shallows is on the other side of the park along the Lester River.  The easiest way to get to the Shallows is to drive up Lester River Rd and park at the Lester Park parking lot.  Head north from the parking lot and pick up the gravel trail that runs along the Lester River.  There are two paths down to the shallows one is a false path that is dangerous and steep.  Make sure you take the one with the stairs.  Once down the stairs follow the short trail to the waterfall.
The Shallows Trail
There is a nice playground near the parking lot.  My wife took the kids over there as I got go see the waterfall.  She is great like that.  It is a very short hike to the Shallows.  Worth it if you have the time, but make sure you go and see the other great Minnesota waterfalls that are in the area.
