Cascade River State Park follows the park tradition of bringing you to the river. Parking is at the mouth of the Cascade and Superior's expanse. A quick jaunt up well-maintained trails brings you to overlooks and walking bridges spanning the cascades. Picnic spots are a quarter-mile farther northeast along Highway 61. Like Gooseberry, Cascade touts its fishing and fall colors, but outdoes itself on its cross-country ski trails. If you want to ski over the river and through the woods, strap on your skinny skis at Cascade.
