Trail starts out flat and runs next to Morgan Creek. You can choose to bike to the waterfall or go up the hill. Its 1.8 miles up the hill from the fork. Very technical, with stream crossings, rock outcroppings and large roots. View at top is awesome. On clear days you can see Lake Superior and the Apostle Islands. Best time is early October with the colors changing.
How to get there:
From Ashland, take Sanborn Ave south past airport. Continue over the White River Dam to Cty E. Go through Sanborn and follow winding road to Ashland-Bayfield Road. Take left, turns into dirt. Continue for 2-3 miles til you are in the National Forest. Parking area on left, $3 parking fee. Not sure if its legal to bike there, but havent been caught yet. Even if you cant bike, its a great hike.
