Hike to Lost Creek Falls

Wisconsin Lost Creek Falls

Added by Stephanie Wagner

A little secluded waterfall that you can walk behind. This hidden little gem on the south shore of Wisconsin is a easy hike for everyone.

From the town of Cornucopia drive west on Hwy 13. You will turn left onto Klemik Road (Dirt Road). Go down about a mile and you will look for a yellow gate/trail on your left. Park on the side of the road.

Once you past the gates and are walking on the trail, you will cross two bridges. After you cross the second bridge the trail starts to climb up the hill. A few hundred yards there’s a side trail off on the right. Follow this until it brings you down to the creek. From there you can follow the trail up the river by foot jumping rocks or take the trail on left of the creek.

Updated trail

The trailhead on trail dr off of County C just before Cornucopia is now well-marked. An improvement project resulted in new boardwalks over drainages, gravel spreading in wet areas, a larger parking lot, and signs along the trail. 3 miles round trip. Very nice trail and beautiful falls!

Amazing Falls!

The hike to the falls was a narrow trail with new boardwalks. It is 3 miles round trip. There is a new trailhead off Hwy C right before Cornucopia, just follow the signs. The falls are beautiful and quite refreshing on a hot day.
