Photograph the Potawatomi and Gorge Waterfalls

Details

Added by Stephanie Windschill

Quick handicap accessible path to two impressive waterfalls in the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness.

Potawatomi and Gorge falls are two of the most scenic waterfalls on the black river. These two waterfalls are an easy stop for anyone and both waterfalls are accessible for wheelchairs. 

The Black River Scenic Byway starts north of US 2 near Bessemer. There are signs on the highway.  The falls are about 14 miles north of US 2. The scenic area/parking lot is on the right and is clearly marked.  Along this same drive you'll be able to pull over and see rainbow falls, sandstone falls and more.

Great Experience

I hiked to both these falls as well as the others listed above. The hikes in were fairly short. All of the waterfalls along this highway are a must-see!
