River State Park
was said to be the only river along the North Shore without a sand "bar"
at its mouth; hence the name. However, it is hardly a moderate river.
A few hundred feet upstream, a thunderous water force continues to carve
out a deeper path in the amazing gorge. Just a few steps away is an
equally splendid falls. Farther upstream, the waters calm, and many
locals swim in the pools.
two falls cut gorges just north of the highway and one fall tumbles below the footbridge just south of the highway
