The most stunning falls I have seen in Wisconsin so far are located in the small blink-and-miss town of Gurney. Here, the Potato River makes a handful of upper drops before it makes a large, wide final drop before the river calms down. Getting to these falls is not easy, be prepared to get your feet wet but have a spectacular view! From the parking area, signs point to a wooden overlook for the Upper Falls:
Getting there: From US-2 and its intersection with Hwy 169, take Hwy 169 south almost three miles through Gurney and take a right on Potato River Falls Rd., take that to its end and a few signs mark the way.
