About The River

On the Road Friday

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!

  1. Wow - that's a lot of water. I've only been to Amnicon in late summer or early fall so haven't seen the falls so full. Your pictures are great. You guys take such fun trips. Wish I could be in your family.

  2. Carla,
    Sorry for the short notice. Is there any chance you'll be home Sunday (June 3) in the afternoon. We're heading down to see my son and thought we'd see if you guys were available. It would be around 3:00 and we could only stay for an hour or so. (Keith doesn't like to drive at night) If you get this message, great. If you don't, we'll try it another time.
    Talk to you later,
    Angie
