The Amnicon Falls State Park Area Trails are located near South Range in Wisconsin’s Douglas County. This is a 2.5 mile (4 km) loop trail within Amnicon Falls State Park. Hikers will get spectacular views of the upper and lower falls of the Amnicon River, the parks main attractions. Though the Amnicon River offers four waterfalls – Upper and Lower Amnicon Falls, Snake Pit Falls and the Now and Then Falls. The main drop of Upper Falls is approximately 15 feet (4.5 m) and Lower Falls is a 30 foot (9.1 m) long slide that’s about 15 feet (4.5 m) high. Snake Pit Falls consists of two drops that are about 10 feet (3 m) high and there is a sharp turn between them. Now and Then Falls is aptly named because it is seasonal and can only be seen in the spring after the winter melt or after a heavy rain. Leashed dogs allowed.
