A short, scenic stretch of river that features one of the most challenging whitewater runs in the Midwest. For a brief but memorable 4-mile stretch, the Menominee River offers expert paddlers a challenging, class II–V whitewater run that ranks among the best in the Midwest. In fact, the sheer volume of water tumbling through the scenic, forested cliffs of Piers Gorge invites comparisons to major Western rivers. This stretch attracts skilled whitewater kayakers from throughout the region and also plays host to guided whitewater rafting trips.
