The Waterfalls of Wisconsin
Last Updated: 2/26/2013
Bubbling, roaring, and uninterrupted. With the recently melted snow, Wisconsin waterfalls make for picture perfect spring scenery. Take a hike through the rolling terrain, or find places to relax and enjoy nature. Here are the must-see stops for these natural beauties:
Known as the “waterfall capital of Wisconsin”, Marinette County is home to a series of scenic and accessible waterfalls. With most of them located in Marinette County's Parks System, hiking, camping or picnicking along the tour makes for a great falls excursion and a wonderful way to cap off a weekend or vacation.
Ranging from bubbling cascades to five of the state’s 10 tallest falls, Iron County provides a full array of waterfall-watching opportunities. Off the beaten path, hikers can see dozens of different falls without the trouble of large crowds.
The 30-foot Fonferek Falls are a part of Fonferek Glen, a 74-acre geological gem. Limestone cliffs, agricultural fields, and natural prairie surround this beauty, so take a seat at the designated overlook and snap some pictures worthy for display on your living room wall!
Looking to make a day trip, weekend or week-long getaway of your waterfall viewing? You can get dining, events, and accommodations by location. Get planning and take advantage of spring in Wisconsin!This entry was posted in Trails and Hiking
