Here are the top six natural wonders in Minnesota.
Listed on the top eight amazing caves in America, the Niagara Cave is located near Harmony. With over 20,000 visitors each year, the cave features a sixty-foot waterfall, stalactites, wedding chapel, various fossils and more. This world wonder is a sight to see once you visit.
Pigeon River High Falls
The Pigeon River High Falls stand high at 120 feet. It is located on the border of Minnesota and Ontario and can be easily accessed from the Pigeon River and the Grand Portage State Park. Visits must take a mile-long trail hike to reach the falls, but it will be all worth the while.
Devil’s Kettle Falls
The fifty-foot waterfall located in Judge C.R. Magney State Park offers both mystery and beauty. As the waterfall is split in two, one-half does into a disappearing cauldron while the other goes into the Brule River. No one has yet to explore where exactly the mystery half ends.
Created over one billion years ago due to a volcanic eruption, the Palisade Heat is considered as one of the top views of the Lake Superior shoreline. The massive rock formation is undeveloped, which provides a natural appeal. You can see the lighthouse at Split Rock and the Apostle Islands. Palisade Head is also a popular rock climbing destination.
Gooseberry Falls State Park
Famously called the gateway to the North Shore, the Gooseberry Falls State Park is located in Two Harbors. It is well known for its river gorge, stunning waterfalls, stone structures, Lake Superior shoreline and more.
