Upper Dave’s Falls, Wisconsin

Upper Dave’s Falls is only a few feet tall, but it’s a rather enjoyable set of waterfalls to visit when in northeastern Wisconsin. The benefits to visiting Upper Dave’s Falls (and it’s lower counterpart): 1) It’s pretty easy to visit. There are no long drives down dirt roads or long hikes. 2) There are a number of other waterfalls in the area, so you can hit a bunch of them in one day. Not a whole lot else to say, except that I really do like the color of the rock around the falls.


  1. The waterfall is south of Pembine on US-141. If you’re driving south from there, it’s only about 1 mile from the city, and the road to the park will be on your right.
  2. Turn right onto County Park Road, which leads to Dave’s Falls County Park.
  3. The most prominent path leads to the lower falls, so wander upstream to get this view of the upper falls.

Accessibility: 10/10 (easy)
Height: 5′
Length of Hike: 0.2 miles round-trip
