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

Started this trail from Enee Point. It’s a nice hike, with some steeper inclines. As you climb closer to the top, it’s pretty clear why it’s named Pine Cliff trail, as dry pine needles cover the ground, which added a nice picturesque feature. To reach the peak, you will need to scale some rocks, but that just adds to the adventure! The view of the lake from the top can be a bit covered with greenery, but if you position yourself just right, you can see some very blue water down at the bottom.

Continued to Lost Canyon Trail from Stephen’s falls. There were some beautiful rock formations with regular encounters with small creeks throughout. Trail is well marked. I definitely recommend bug spray! There were some steep inclines, but worth it!

Stephen’s Falls is markedly advertised from the main road through the park. It’s a very short hike down to the waterfall, though there are some steep areas. Beautiful scenery. Who doesn’t love a waterfall? You can connect to the Lost Canyon Trail for additional hiking.

Felt like more of a walk than a hike. Either super sunny or all shade and bugs. Some steep hills which is a good challenge but since it’s all graded felt more like a walk than a hike. The falls were great to see though but PACKED with people swimming and lounging. I’d suggest a weekday.

Pretty great views but my only complaints are that: (1) the trail becomes just impossible to follow after the caves with zero trail markers the whole time that I eventually had to turn around with fear of being lost and (2) the lack of fencing around the caves would make it extremely dangerous to bring small children. That being said, the trail was overall very easy walking, only a few spots where I had to take big step ups/step downs, moments where the trail was slippery, but overall a nice, enjoyable trial! Lots of tree coverage from the sun, cute little streams to enjoy, nice openings where you can enjoy the lake and it’s expanse, and pretty decent teaser views of the caves.

recommend bug spray and hiking boots for full enjoyment. mostly dry creek bed lots of fun for exploration. unmaintained trail with dangerous edges - not for young children.

Ok for a short morning walk the falls are pretty but can be very crowded because there's a parking lot nearby letting people access the falls easily without hiking in.

Stumbled acrossed the falls on our way back from a trip to cadott wi. Was prefect spot to get out and stretch our legs was easy walk nice trail really enjoyed it. When we got to the tallest falls there was a family there that told us they just watched some kayakers go over the falls their boys were real excited about that would have been cool to see. Here this week going to stop again on our way back to cadott and try and find some others to stop at on way back.

Did this hike over the winter months and it was a decent trail—not at all difficult. The waterfall is gorgeous and I would love to come back in the fall. I think the trails are very well suited to Nordic skiing, which I would also like to come back and do.

Wear water shoes and walk in the water back to the falls. Nice wide and paved trailhead. Short hike, but very fun and pretty.

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.


Some awesome views. Be sure to take the side trails for the views and be sure to make it to the last viewpoint before the camp.

There are a few steep hills but nothing crazy. Mostly out in the open, not a lot of shade and no water sources. Also the drawdown of the lake doesn’t leave you with great water views. But still a good hike.

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.

Awesome app! Would not be able to find best trailheads without it. It really got our family out into nature

Awesome leg workout and beautiful scenery.

If you go early in the morning on a weekday, it's very empty and peaceful. The later you go in the day, the more heavy traffic you will see. The waterfall is worth the walk. Beware of snakes, especially if you have little ones walking with you.

LOVE the waterfall and the scenic view points are great, especially the one at the top of the staircase. Easily a favorite and have visited many times.

The upper falls trail is spectacular. The waterfalls as well as the rock formations. Beautiful place

Nice hidden gem in Wisconsin. Can be made to a longer loop with Lost Canyon Trail.

Not much to hike at the Devils Punch Bowl, but there was a waterfall from snow melt when we were there in the spring. Hike the nearby Red Cedar Trail for miles of hiking.
