Vermillion Falls

Vermillion Falls Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Vermillion River flows lazily through sprawling suburbs, open fields of corn and soybeans, and past clusters of grain silos bordering hardworking farmsteads. The river whispers into Hastings, its current barely making a ripple, then suddenly comes to life in a thundering, frothy waterfall at the ConAgra Mill. The river roars over the crest and plunges nearly 50 feet to a deep pool at the bottom of a wooded gorge.

Hardy foliage grows in dapples of green from impossible locations on the gorge’s vertical limestone walls, providing miniature habitats for birds and high-altitude feeding stations for bees and other airborne critters. This rugged chasm is a beautiful place, filled with thick woods of maple, ash, cottonwood, and cedar."
