Pine Lake is an awesome sight. Its deep blue water stretches for almost 7 miles from east to west, and high bluffs line its shorelines. At the west end Johnson Falls, a 25-foot-high, boiling, smashing waterfall and white water chute, can be seen. This trip eventually leaves Pine Lake for a loop through several smaller, but unique, lakes and then returns to the west end again. Walleye fishing can be fantastic, and lake trout, northern pike, and smallmouth bass are available. Independence Day storm–affected area.
