Lost Falls - Black River Falls, WI

Another relatively easy waterfall in the Black River Falls area is Lost Falls. This can be located by following the large “Lost Falls Campground” signs on the main highways.

Polly Falls [FAILED]

Polly Falls [FAILED]

Purposely failed vising Polly Falls in the Black River Falls, WI area just to see what I could find. As I suspected everything is posted “private property” and there is no formal public access available. Maps confirm there is no public access other than by Robinson Creek or maybe Stony Creek which would require wading, … Read more Polly Falls [FAILED]

Rock Cut Dam & Swimming Falls

Swimming Falls - Looking over the falls from upstream

Back on the hunt for waterfalls at Rock Dam County Park & Campground near the remote small town of Willard, Wisconsin.  According to my notes this should be accessible through the campground. Nobody was available that day so I went around to Rock Cut Dam first to check for public access. Some excellent views of … Read more Rock Cut Dam & Swimming Falls

The Dells Mill & Museum

The Dells Mill & Museum

Made a quick stop in Augusta, Wisconsin to see The Dells Mill & Museum, a historic site and a top scenic destination in the state. Built in 1864 as a grist mill it was in continuous operation until as recent as 1968. Sadly I arrived too late for any tours or views inside the museum … Read more The Dells Mill & Museum

Pattison State Park – Copper Creek Falls

Pattison State Park - Copper Creek Falls upper section from side

Intermittent storms for the past several days washed away my best laid plans.  Today (Jul-6) the stars aligned giving me blue skies, 72 degres, and a gentle breeze.  Just about the perfect day to attempt a mysterious and unpublished waterfall called Copper Creek Falls at Pattison State Park.  Access is through the northern park section … Read more Pattison State Park – Copper Creek Falls

Rouse Falls

Rouse Falls - View below falls

Chasing another waterfall on Iron County Forest lands, this time at Rouse Falls.  Due to heavy overnight rains the tracks here are mostly mud so I opted for the mountain bike.  Pay close attention at the first fork in the road and STAY LEFT if you don’t like mud. I did not pay attention and … Read more Rouse Falls

Morgan Falls / St Peters Dome

St Peter's Dome - Amazing view across the forest

One of the most popular destinations in the entire state (and for good reason) is a 2-for-1 waterfall and panoramic view found at Morgan Falls & St. Peter’s Dome.  I stopped here last year but it was still closed due to storm damage – this year everything has been restored. Several new wooden bridges at … Read more Morgan Falls / St Peters Dome

Armstrong Creek Rapids

Armstrong Creek Rapids

Last stop of the day is at Armstrong Creek Rapids, a smaller feature but significant for the conservation and historical aspects.  Seen here is Red Bridge, one of few remaining pony truss bridges, and a structure on both Wisconsin & National Historic Registers. Red Bridge itself no longer spans across Old 101 road – that … Read more Armstrong Creek Rapids

Baird Creek Falls

Baird Creek Falls - Main Falls

While still in the Green Bay area I stopped by a local park to visit a small collection of falls named Baird Creek Falls. Access to the main falls shown here are very easy via a paved walking & bike path that circles the park.  Overall drop is tiny but it’s still a waterfall for … Read more Baird Creek Falls

Cascade Falls / Geiger Falls

Cascade Falls

After this morning’s ~4 mi. hike it was time for a lunch break.  I decided to venture outside the park in search of more waterfalls (and a burrito at a place called Poco Loco).  Next stop was Cascade Falls in Osceola, Wisconsin.  History lesson: the town was named after Osceola, leader of the Seminole resistance … Read more Cascade Falls / Geiger Falls
