Smalley Falls - Pembine, Wisconsin

Pemebonwon River
Pembine, Wisconsin

Much like Long Slide Falls, Smalley Falls is located near the Michigan/Wisconsin border and is incredibly easy to get to. Unlike Long Slide Falls, there is no great vantage point to photograph the entire falls, leaving at best some clear views of the main 10-foot drop. There are no railings here, so staying near the trail and using caution is advised. My second visit here was in June 2013, in a light rain.
The falls may not be impressive in size, but they make up for that thanks to their location. There is a small day use fee that goes to the county. The trail has a few steep/rough spots, but is less than a quarter mile in length. From the bank, choose one of several vantage points to view parts of the falls.

Getting there: From Hwy 141 north of Pembine and south of Niagara, turn onto Morgan Park Road. A quarter mile down the road, take the well-marked drive on the right for Smalley Falls. Long Slide Falls have their own parking area another quarter mile down Morgan Park Rd.

Overall: Good
Hike: Easy to Moderate
