Morgan Falls and St Peters Dome

A short drive from Mineral Lake on Mineral Lake Road, Morgan Falls and St Peter’s Dome hiking area had a challenging hike up to St Peter’s Dome and at the bottom had Morgan Falls.

The wide trail to Morgan Falls could accommodate wheelchairs, but it would be a rough adventure because muddy conditions in spots.  Morgan Falls is less than a mile from the parking lot and there is a five dollar trail fee, which I felt was worth it.

The roughly hundred foot high waterfall cascades down into the gorge where it collects in a small pool.

Then it plunges another ten feet or so to the gorge’s bottom.

The hike up to St Peters Dome can be rough going and isn’t a flat-lander’s hike.

These stones, for instance, provide a bridge across one of the creeks you cross on the way up.

The view at the top is spectacular and the forestry service claims you can see Lake Superior on a clear day.  It was too hazy when I got there.
