Description
Located along the south side of M-26 as it enters the village of Eagle River. A parking area and pedestrian bridge just off M-26 make viewing these falls very easy.

The falls is on the site of the original Lake Superior Fuse Company and remains of the dam still span most of the 60-foot wide river. The dam extends the falls to a total height of well over 60 feet. Water drops over the dam in a straight sheet, forms tendrils that flow over the rocks forming its steep banks then rejoins at the bottom of the deep gorge.
