It's a short distance (.3 miles - 135 steps) from the parking area to this stunning waterfall. Located In the middle of Osceola, this is a must do if you find yourself in the area.

Cascade Falls is a must-stop if you are passing through Osceola, Wisconsin. The falls can be accessed on Cascade Street (Highway 35) near 1st Avenue in downtown Osceola. You will see a sign for the Falls at the deck by Chief Osceola. Continue down the 135 steps that lead from this platform down to Cascade Falls. This waterfall has a 25 foot drop into Wilkie Glen. You can continue following the stream across the boardwalk to reach the St. Croix River. The Falls are lit up at dusk with colored light that changes over time. Cascade Falls is also fun to explore in the winter when the glen freezes.
