The Waterfall Capital of Wisconsin

Waterfall Tours

Our world famous waterfalls tour offers short and long hikes in serene, natural settings. Please use caution — some of the trails are rough, and the rushing waters can be dangerous. Be sure to wear good walking or hiking shoes for optimum enjoyment.

About half of the waterfalls on our tour are located in the Marinette County Parks system. A $3.00 per day (per car) or $12.00 per year (per car) entrance fee can be paid at park entrances and is valid for admission to all county parks.
We recommend allowing 2-3 days to experience the entire tour.

Marinette County Trout Unlimited, Marinette County Parks and the Marinette County Highway Departments have provided signage along the routes. Look for the blue signs to help you find your way!

Why not try a “Mini-Tour”?

Marinette County’s Waterfalls Tour is a big attraction for residents and visitors, and is becoming increasingly popular. As the third largest county in the state, many “locals” are fully aware of the distances between some of the falls. But visitors are sometimes caught trying to see too much in too little time.

That’s why we decided to re-create the “Big Tour” into several “Mini Tours.” Now you can take one of four shorter tours that will allow you plenty of time to visit a number of falls without feeling like you missed out on something. We call these shorter tours:
