Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Gooseberry Falls

Gooseberry Falls along Highway 61 in Minnesota

One of the most beautiful scenic drives in the Midwest and the country is Highway 61 from Duluth, Minnesota up the north shore of Lake Superior to the Canadian Border. One of the highlights of this stretch is Gooseberry Falls.  Gooseberry Falls is a series of beautiful terraced waterfalls along the Gooseberry River as it enters Lake Superior.

This means there is a lot to do and see in Gooseberry Falls State Park. Besides the waterfall, there is also the Lake Superior shoreline, 20 miles of hiking trails, and 12 miles of cross-country ski trails in the winter.


The goal of Traveling Ted is to inspire people to outdoor adventure travel and then provide tips on where and how to go.
