Glen Avon Falls
Although typically unknown to the casual North Shore traveler, Glen Avon Falls, a hidden North-Shore gem, is a popular destination for anglers. Visitors can park and walk about 40 yards across a red, rocky area to the river’s edge. The Beaver River flows gently through this juncture and widens into a dramatic drop over a route of over 100 tumbling yards. The river then narrows again, circulating at the bottom in a lethargic whirlpool before flowing away. The Instagram-worthy vista sets in a broad valley with a forested ridge hiding the view of Lake Superior. Head north 1.6 miles on Lax Lake Road, and turn left on C.R. 3. Follow C.R. 3 for 1.2 miles, where you will see a narrow, red dirt road heading toward the river.
