Aerial drone video courtesy of Liftoff Ariels of both Manitou River Falls near Highway 61. There are two main sets of falls, with the last set of falls dropping 40 to 50 feet directly into Lake Superior, making it one of only a few water falls that drop directly into Lake Superior. The land from Highway 61 to the lake shore is private. Due to the high cliffs and private land the only way to view and access the base of the falls that fall directly into Lake Superior is by water craft. Video courtesy of liftoffaerials.com.
