Know Before You Go
Take US Highway 61 north anywhere on its route from New Orleans to Canada until you are about 15 miles short of Canada. Look for the Judge Magney State Park sign and turn left.
It's a bit of a hike from Highway 61, about 2.5 miles round-trip. About .75 miles into the hike, you’ll come across a path that cuts back behind and to the left of the main trail, taking you down to the lower falls of the Brule River. While impressive, it’s only a teaser of what’s to come ahead, the Devils Kettle.
At the end of the major hike (the trail continues on as the Superior Hiking Trail) you’ll arrive at Devil’s Kettle. About 1.25 miles in is an overlook where you can see the whole falls just before the steps that will bring you to the kettle. Brace yourself, it’s about 200 steps down to the river and up to the top of the kettle, but there are benches to stop and catch your breath.
