Lovely picturesque falls and very accessible as even if you are not able to walk up the path to the side you can see the falls easily from the car park. Very good information about the falls from the boards displayed.

Short drive off the main road. Pretty waterfall and only takes 20 to 30 minutes to drive there, snap a few photos and be back on the road. Definitely worth the quick side trip.

Just a short drive, mile or so, down a gravel road you will find the falls. They were not huge the day we were there but it was very pretty. Worth a little side trip if you like to listen to the rushing water and take a few pics.

It is a unique looking waterfall and serves as hydropower I believe.Not too far off the main road and worth a look.

There's a frontal view of the falls, it looked like a smaller gooseberry falls along Minnesota north shore. There was an artist's exhibit of painted Adirondack chairs. Explore the boardwalk for a side view of the falls into the gorge. Aim your lens to avoid the mesh wire. Beware of poison ivy creeping up the wooden steps.

What a nice surprise; just south of Wawa; past the blueberry field. Huge falls with easy trail/stairs to top on one side. Very scenic; worth the few minutes drive off the hwy.

These falls are easily accessible and very pretty. You can hike a short distance to an overlook, but the chain link fence makes pictures difficult from that vantage point. Doesn't really matter though--still pretty!

Wawa Falls is one of those places where you see the sign from the road, and usually just keep on driving. But we weren't in a rush, and the scenery was fantastic all around, time was long, and we just did it! Not much of a walk from the parking area, it is well worth the time to see it... More

This falls was amazing. The power was next to nothing and I would compare it to N Falls. Be aware of the warning signs. It was out of this world. Take the time to drive back and see it. You won't be disappointed.

If you travel by motorbike.... Beware, the road is in bad shape with lots of loose gravel and poorly maintained. It is a very scenic place. As long as you do not travel up the path for a better view, for the top of the falls. They placed an eight foot high fence around with barbed wire on top. What... More
