On the Road Friday
Today we will take a trip to
Amnicon Falls State Park - Northern Wisconsin
We visited on Memorial Day, May 28th. Northern Wisconsin received over 10 inches of rain! The river was amazing, we could not believe how fast the water was moving.
We hiked along the Thimbleberry Nature Trail, part of the trail follows along the river.
The sound was amazing. I do have video, I hope to share soon. It was so loud!
We could not go any farther on this trail. Can you see the stairs across they way?
Flowing northeast through the center of Amnicon Falls State Park, the Amnicon River has produced one of the most beautiful series of waterfalls and cascades in all the Midwest.
In the heart of the park, the river separates into two streams and plunges over three waterfalls of nearly 30 feet each. During good water flow, the Amnicon fills yet another channel and produces a fourth falls.
Among the attractions at Amnicon Falls State Park is the 55 foot long bridge that spans the river at the Lower Falls. Originally it had no covering and was a highway bridge that crossed Amnicon River not far from the park.
Check out the following site for more information on Amnicon Falls State Park.
We asked the Ranger when we left if the park would have to close if they received more rain. She said that they would close the area to the falls. They had to do it in year 2003.
Thanks for taking a road trip with me!
