HikingGreat!

As with all the Black River waterfalls lots of steps down to see the waterfall. But, these were the prettiest steps. Very green area leading down to the falls. And unlike the other falls on the Black River, you can actually spread out to see them, you are not stuck on an overlook with other people (which could be dangerous now due to Covid-19). Instead there are very large rock "shelves" that jut into the river from the shore and you can make your way around and find a spot to enjoy the falls without crowds of other people. Although Potawatomi fall is probably the prettiest on the Black River, Sandstone Falls I feel is the nicest because it is what you usually expect from a waterfall, where you can get up close to the bottom of the falls and go out on rocks and sit to enjoy it.

Good road. Easy find. Low water, as to be expected at this time of year. Hit all the black river falls today

The stairs aren't horrible and it's well worth it. Being able to climb on the rocks and stand out in the river bed (at least in July) was amazing! But, I love rocks, so there's that.

First to Review

145 vertical steps down to the water, much easier on the way down than the way up! Fun to get right on the banks of the river.
