The Pine and Popple Rivers have seven named waterfalls, with the Pine River's 22-foot high LaSalle Falls being the highest and most impressive. Most waterfalls are accessible by foot from either town or county forest roads. A guide pamphlet [exit DNR] [PDF] dealing specifically with waterfalls in Florence County has been developed by the Florence County Forestry and Parks Department and is available at the Florence Natural Resource and Wild Rivers Interpretive Center [exit DNR].

Little Bull Falls, Big Bull Falls, Washburn Falls, and Jennings Falls are located on the Popple River. Meyers Falls, Bull Falls, and LaSalle Falls are located on the Pine River.

Please use portages around waterfalls and rapids!
