Visit the Vermilion Falls... marvel at the cascading waterfall...

Vermilion Falls FEATURES

A 10-minute hike on a well-maintained trail going southwest puts you at the Vermilion Falls, a cascading torrent of water forced through a 10-foot-wide opening in the granite.

The northeast section of the trail will lead you to “The Chute,” a constriction in the river that produces a Class III to V rapids. This is a pleasant 5-minute walk and worth the effort.

Look for wild rice beds. The shoots begin to emerge in mid-July and seed heads won’t develop until the first part of August. Extensive wild rice beds flourish along the Vermilion River and are harvested by humans and wildlife alike from late August through October.

There are picnic tables and fire grates at the site for a perfect afternoon adventure!
