Breakwater Falls is a unique and spectacular 60 foot, 3-tiered waterfall that, until recently, did not have a name and was missing from maps for 90 years. Breakwater Falls is the 6th largest waterfall in Wisconsin and flows over bedrock that is 2 billion years old. It is one of 8 waterfalls in Florence County that are located on the Pine and Popple Wild Rivers. Breakwater Falls is located 1.75 miles west of County Road N where Power Dam Rd dead ends at the We Energies Powerhouse. Park near the turnaround and follow the signs up the dam's access road to reach the top of the falls just past the base of the dam. The trails are primitive and somewhat rugged. Wear good footwear to follow the trail past all 3-tiers and along a portion of the gorge rapids.
