Morgan Falls / St. Peter's Dome Trail Professional Review and Guide

"When local people talk about their favorite places in the Chequamegon National Forest, Morgan Falls and St. Peter’s Dome are always near the top of the list. They offer the perfect contrast of experiences. Morgan Falls is intimate. The state’s second highest falls, it tumbles down a rock face in steps. The volume of water is never great, even in spring. In winter the only clue that there is a falls under the snow is an open swirling pool at the base. On St. Peter’s Dome the world opens up.

A clear day reveals Lake Superior and the Apostle Islands 20 miles to the north. Below is the vast carpet of the forest and farmsteads in the lowland near the lake. The top is 400 feet above the starting point. St. Peter’s is a granite dome created during a billion-year-old mountain building phase that saw huge fissures open in the earth’s crust. Molten rock welled up from the mantle, forming features like St. Peter’s. Surface quality: Ungroomed, hiker and snowshoer packed Fees: yes."

This is a great hiking and snowshoeing trail but for the snowshoeing to be fun you do need a good amount of snow otherwise the trip up to St Peters Dome can be very rocky. The view from St Peters Dome is as good as it gets any season of the year.
