Black River Scenic Byway & Waterfalls

Located just down Black River Road from Big Powderhorn Mountain Resort, the Black River National Scenic Byway is known for its hiking trails and spectacular waterfalls as the Black River winds it’s way through pristine and picturesque canyons covered in old growth hemlock forest. The Black River flows through Great Conglomerate Falls, Potawatomi Falls, Gorge Falls, Sandstone Falls, and finally Rainbow Falls before it flows under the iconic Black River Harbor Suspension Bridge and into Lake Superior.
