Long Slide Falls - Pembine, Wisconsin

Pemebonwon River
Pembine, Wisconsin

Long Slide Falls are one of the best waterfalls Wisconsin has to offer, and very near to several other falls. Just across the border from Michigan, Long Slide Falls and Smalley Falls are located on the same road and accessible for only a small day use fee. The "long slide" is about 50 feet and gradual, the river cutting through rocks while surrounded by thick forest on both sides. The hiking trail is very short, but requires some caution near the river in wet conditions. We visited during a light rain, which helped pictures turn out good but made for some tricking going on our descent down.

Getting there: From Hwy 141 north of Pembine and south of Niagara, look for and turn on Morgan Park Rd. About a half mile down the road, the drive on the right is well-marked and leads to the path for Long Slide Falls (you will have passed the drive for Smalley Falls on the way).

Overall: Good
Hike: Easy to Moderate
