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.
