Hiking North Fork Sauk Falls

This short trail descends 200 feet to the base of a large 45-foot waterfall.

It is well worth the half-hour diversion for anyone traveling along the Mountain Loop Highway as the high falls are spectacular. Stretch your legs on the way back or to a hike, but note that the steps at the bottom can be quite slippery when wet.
