We've got them in abundance. As our rivers race northward toward Lake Superior, more than 30 cascades surround the Hurley Area. Here we'll share a look at a dozen with public access in Iron County. Yet there are even more in every direction, particularly on the Black River Scenic Byway, which begins in the neighboring upper peninsula, about five miles from Hurley. Whether you come to simply look, take pictures, enjoy nature's beauty, or find the vitalized mist rising from a waterfall, where micro molecules maximally absorb atmospheric oxygen to be healthful refresher, we welcome you.
Superior Falls on the Montreal River near Lake Superior cascades 110 feet. Potato River Falls on the western side of the county roars 90 feet downward. Each feature cascade is taller than a 10 story building.
Saxon Falls, also on the Montreal River, drops 90 feet. It is the starting point in the spring time for three miles of a wild white water ride through the Montreal River Canyon for only the most experienced kayak enthusiast.
To get to our waterfalls is very easy in some cases, with parks for a picnic or camping adjacent. Yet other falls require a little hiking and ingenuity to fully experience.
