Tischer Creek Falls

May 2017

State: Minnesota

Location: Duluth

Height: Multiple drops

Crest: 10

Water Source: Tischer Creek

Waypoint: 46.8185N 92.0571W

Summary: A series of falls in a very pretty city park. Not as impressive or wild as the much bigger falls further up the coast, but if you are in Duluth and want to take a hike, this is a great spot.

Congdon Park, established in 1908, protects a mile long gorge carved out by Tischer Creek. There are a number of small falls along the creek of various sizes and shapes. A trail follows the creek through the gorge, and there is also a trail along the rim. This is an urban park, but the gorge still has a rugged feel, despite being surrounded by roads and houses.

The waterfalls are located between Superior Street and 4th Street. I would recommend starting at Superior Street and walking up the gorge trail. There is no dedicated parking area for Congdon Park, but there is street parking on Superior Street.

[North Shore] Nearby Falls

Nearby Lester Park also contains a set of small waterfalls. If you head north on Highway 61 you will find a bunch of waterfalls, starting with Goose Berry Falls, Beaver River Falls, Baptism High Falls, Illgen Falls, plus many more. Wisconsin's Big Manitou Falls is about 20 miles to the south.
