This is a must see place to go if you are anywhere in the area. It is worth the drive. The hike back to the falls is very short and the trails well maintained. Nature's beauty at it's best! A favorite of the entire family.

Very pretty and easy to walk to. The surrounding woods is very "Minnesota". There are picnic tables for your use.

This is a very neat place to see. My mother-in-law who is 83 and uses a cane was even able to navigate from the parking lot to the falls. If you have ever seen an old Hamm's beer commercial, the river above the falls will...More

After a short, beautiful drive from Orr, Minnesota, we arrived at Vermillion Falls. There was a quick, easily accessible, hike to the falls. Once we arrived at the overlook, we could see the rushing Falls. The more adventurous in our group we're able to hike...More
