Judge Magney State Park
ome for the quiet, the solitude, and the famous Devil’s Kettle waterfall. The most popular hike leads from the trailhead upstream along the Brule River to Devil’s Kettle, where the river splits around a mass of volcanic rock. Half of the river plunges 50 feet into a pool, while the rest pours into a huge pothole. Anglers can catch brook and rainbow trout in the Brule River or its tributary, Gauthier Creek. The park offers camping, picnicking and hiking.
Devil’s Kettle Overlook
The falls at Devil’s Kettle are split in two, with half of the river dropping 50 feet into a pool and the other half emptying into an enormous pothole. 1.1 billion years ago, dramatic volcanic activity poured lava through fissures in the crust of the earth, creating volcanic flow complexes. The flow complex that is visible at Devil’s Kettle is believed to be 770 feet thick.
Above Devil’s Kettle
On the Brule River above Devil’s Kettle, the volcanic flow complex that characterizes the stunning falls is revealed. Whitewater rapids are formed as the water rushes towards the long drop.
The Upper Falls cascade over a rocky embankment and into a quieter section of river. Located downstream of Devil’s Kettle, the Upper Falls is a popular place for park visitors to stop and experience the majesty and beauty of the park.
