“hidden in the small village of Osceola”

Cascade Falls is located in the small village of Osceola along the St. Croix River. It is a familiar story: the much larger St. Croix has carved out a deep gorge into which the much smaller Osceola Creek falls. A set of stairs located right off the main road into Osceola leads you down into the gorge and to the base of the falls. The trail continues to the shores of the St. Croix. The Osceola Creek drops 100 feet between town and the river, but this is the only big drop. The falls were the reason for the founding of the village. They once supported a mill, and a brewery. Some ruins of the old industry remain above the falls. There is also a second small falls where an even smaller creek falls into the Osceola just above the main falls. This is called Geiger Falls and was named for the brewer.

Nice little day trip from the Twin Cities. It reminds me of Minnehaha Falls, but smaller in scale. You can walk right up to the falls, but be careful of black ice in colder weather. The trail down to the St, Croix is short enough for young families to take and it follows the creek down to the river, where there is a beautiful view. Be prepared to walk some steps though, as you need to descend down a long stairway to see anything. I would not recommend this trip for those who have difficulty walking. The town of Osceola is pretty small, but clean, with a few shops.
