Get Directions


Come to this north-country wilderness park where waterfalls cascade through a volcanic canyon surrounded by majestic forest. The trails in the park are carved through a forest of fir, cedar, spruce, and northern hardwoods. Although the trails are steep and challenging for hikers and backpackers, they offer spectacular views. Try your hand at fishing for the chance to catch trout and splake in Benson Lake. There are secluded campsites along the cascading Manitou River and Benson Lake for backpackers only. The remote sites range from 1/4 to 4-1/2 miles from the parking area. All have water sources near them (water must be treated or filtered).
