Exploring Hamilton Falls: A Hidden Gem on the North Fork of the Eau Claire River

Welcome back to Wiscolens.com! In the second episode of our Wisconsin Waterfalls series, we journey to the remote and serene Hamilton Falls, nestled on the North Fork of the Eau Claire River. While Hamilton Falls may not be one of Wisconsin’s most famous waterfalls, its unique charm and proximity to the more popular Big Falls make it a worthy addition to your travel itinerary.

Discovering Hamilton Falls

Hamilton Falls is best described as a large rapids, spanning the width of the river. Though it may not be a towering cascade, the falls offer a tranquil escape with the soothing sounds of water rushing over the ledge. The surrounding forest adds to the serene ambiance, making it a perfect spot for nature lovers and those seeking a peaceful retreat.

How to Get There

Located in the remote areas of Eau Claire County, Hamilton Falls can be found off Hamilton Falls Road, which branches off County Road MM. For those driving in, there is an ATV parking lot where you can leave your vehicle. From there, it’s a short walk down the road to a washed-out footpath that leads directly to the falls. Don’t worry about getting lost—you’ll hear the roaring waters guiding you along the way.
