The Hurley area features more than 50 waterfalls of varying heights. Two are tied for the greatest descent. Superior Falls on the Montreal River near it’s mouth at Lake Superior and Potato River Falls on the western side of the county each feature cascades greater than a 10 story building. To get to our waterfalls is very easy in some cases, with parks for a picnic or camping adjacent. Yet other falls require a little hiking and ingenuity to fully experience. Saxon Falls, also on the Montreal River, drops 78 feet. It is the starting point in the spring time for three miles of a wild white water ride through the Montreal River Canyon for only the most experienced kayak enthusiast.
