Spring Waterfalling for Family Day

The sight and sound of water roaring by before cascading down a 20-foot drop to meet the awaiting pool below is something that must be experienced in northern Wisconsin. Waterfalls are considered to be one of our “best kept secrets” and a must-do on your next trip north. Within an 80-mile radius of Manitowish Waters, visitors can explore an abundance of breathtaking and beautiful waterfalls. Some are wild and dramatic, while others are soft whispers on the rocks as they gently fall to the awaiting water below. In the summer months, visitors can explore waterfalls across the area, some with wellestablished parking lots and well-marked trails, while others offer rustic, intimate experiences with nature. Waterfall areas offer an array of waterfall-viewing opportunities from overlook platforms to a distant hike. As seasons change, fall colors create a gorgeous backdrop to explore the rustic roads of the area and the bubbling cascades. When the snow flies, rushing water transforms into beautiful ice formations. Explore waterfall areas on snowshoes to wander the stone embankments, towering forests and ice pillars.
