A short hike to a unique skinny waterfall that zig zag's through the rock crevices.


It's a easy hike to the waterfall being only 1.2 mile round trip, but traveling to the waterfall might take time as it's fairly remote. There is a $5 daily park fee.

Directions can be complicated depending on which direction you are coming from, so I highly recommend entering it into your google maps and taking a screen shot of the directions as you will most likely lose cell phone service.

If you are coming from the North or West:

From Hwy 2, take 112 South, which will turn into Country Rd after a couple sharp turns you'll approach a road that veers off to the left called "Ashland Bayfield Rd". A church will be shortly after it... take this turn. Follow this dirt road to the trail head.

You can also take Hwy 63 off of Hwy 2. You would then turn right on to County Road E, the Ashland Bayfield Rd would be on the right then.

If you are coming from East (Copper Falls State Park):

Go North on Hwy 13 and turn left on County Road C. Take this road to Ashland Bayfield Rd and turn left. Proceed to trail head.

After you visit the waterfall, take the longer hike to the overlook at the top St. Peters Dome.
