Beautiful! Very well maintained trails with informative signs. There is a wheel chair accessible portion that gives you great views of the falls or you can continue on a loop that allows views of al the Falls. Be aware there are a lot of steps.

Nice views and easy trails

Great hike. Beautiful scenery and trail is very well maintained.

Overall, we had a good time. The falls where great. There’s an additional trail off the main path which leads to the observation tower. Once at the top, we couldn’t see past the tree tops next to the tower. We will definitely be back.

Great trail! High rains resulted in spectacular raging falls. We ended up here because it’s the only trail in the park that allows dogs. Very pleased to have taken the less populated path.

Very disheartening to arrive here and discover that dogs are not allowed on this trail, though your description specifically states otherwise. Lesson learned; go to the source. The only trail in the park that is dog friendly is the Red Granite Falls Trail and that was spectacular and very unpopulated, so the day was not a total loss.

A beautiful Wisconsin hike. Great views! Worth a 3-4 hour drive to get to!

Great trail, beautiful. Lots of steps, just wish the trail was longer, so go around again. Not a good trail for anyone that can't do stairs.

It was a blast we stopped here from big bay and we did 1.7 miles loop within 40 min, the colors are starting to change and the trail was not busy.

We usually stay in sayner, wi. Was looking for a trail that was out of his world, this hit all the nails on the head. Hike the main copper falls trail which is about a 1.7 mile loop and then the red granite falls, it's a figure 8 trail, 2.4miles, it is much less populated and you can climb on the rocks and see some good falls. If you are out of state, like us, pay 11 dollars to get into the park, worth every penny! Our trip to CO got canceled and this by far made up for it! A bit of a hillbilly nowhere drive but don't be frightened! I will post some photos as well. We went in late June, after a good amount of recent rainfall.

Probably the best waterfalls in Wisconsin....really great views of several different waterfalls on a short, minimally strenuous hike (there are some stairs, but well laid out). The only reason a 4 and not a 5?....NO DOGS ALLOWED! Did not know this on a hot day, had to take turns with my boyfriend to hike & photograph....even though I passed 5 dogs on the trail....

Nice easy hike on the Doughboy trail to see many views of this amazing park. Very cool views of all of the falls and cascades!

I love this place. It is mainly because this is where my love of waterfalls began! It was the first one that I ever saw. One of the trails is on a bordawalk path and they don't want you to vear from this but the views are abundant and you can clearly see at least 2 of the 3 falls from this. There is another trails that is not paved and you can get alot closer to everything if you choose too! I'm not sure that they actually equal 10 miles combined but if they do then great :P! Beautiful place to see and after a rain, when the snow is on the ground, or when it is melting are all good times of the year to go :D!
