Beautiful water falls! Crossing the river can be difficult but the area you get to is great. You can stay on the same side though and still get to the end waterfall, just cant jump off from that side! Bring sturdy shoes and water. Show more

Start at Wetmore pond parking off of Big Bay Rd. for a south-side approach (there's no sign at turn-in, so listen to GPS). Make sure to check the map at the beginning, showing where the 3 trails lead. You will take the one on the far right (Hogback). Keep right at the split 50 yards in (left goes back to the parking lot). The first part is through woods with a rocky trail - you'll go over 2-3 wooden planks, duck under 2 orange-marked trees, pass a spider-web shaped overturned tree trunk and open onto flat-face rock area for the second park. Stick to the left side, and you'll find the continuation of the trail. Follow the blue plates as there will also be white plates, and green paint marks. The third part is a woodsy with some swampy area with wooden crossing planks. You will cross a short bridge and a snowmobile trail just beyond it. If you see signs for the Lily Pond loop, you've gone the wrong way! Turn back, and you should find small signs/placks pointing to Hogback. You should pass a narrow, quick-flowing stream. From here, a steady ascent starts and you are in part four of this trail. You will reach the end of the blue plate trail (indicated by 2 blue plates with 2 white squares on them) - you can keep following the white tags from this point forward. You will reach a point right under the summit, where it seems like you can go straight up - don't. The trail will snake around to the left. Follow this, and it will get you to the summit. Last part is a steep, rocky climb needing both hands. Show more
