Amnicon Falls State ParkTrail descriptions

Hiking Thimbleberry nature trail

The 0.8-mile Thimbleberry Nature Trail is the place to observe a variety of trees, flowers, non-flowering plants, birds and animals. A side spur leads to a pond, which once was a brownstone quarry. A booklet keyed to numbered signposts tells more about the things you'll see. The trail also provides views of the flat part of the river as well as easy access to the river bed about 0.2 miles downstream from the falls.

Hiking Trails around the falls

The most popular trail to view the falls is the 0.25 mile trail on the island. This trail gives you viewing access to the three main falls; Upper, Lower and Snake Pit. It also provides viewing opportunities to other smaller water falls and pools. An additional 0.5 miles of trail goes up and down the river to view many other pools and cascades. The two river walks are relatively flat and easy.

Snowshoeing Snowshoe trail

A designated 1.5 mile snowshoe trail does not have access to the river but provides a convenient way to enjoy some of the remote areas of the park in winter. The trail is fairly flat with some steeper segments in and out of the ancient river valley.
