Piers Gorge Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Most times the Menominee River runs deep and slow and stretches almost 100 yards across. At Piers Gorge it gets rowdy. Bedrock walls channel the flow into an 80-footwide sluice, part of a mile-long stretch of swift water and rapids topped off by a crescendo of thundering ledge drops.
It is a striking scene of big water throwing its weight around, the roaring soundtrack a not-too-subtle warning to stand clear, or else. Quieter scenes also play out here. One could spend hours musing over the current’s patterns etched in the bedrock. The forest is a pleasure to the eye, and eagles and ospreys scan from above for an easy meal."
