Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest

Morgan Falls and St. Peter's Dome


These popular trails are located in a non-motorized area. Highlights of the trail are the 70 foot high Morgan Falls and the overlook at the top of St. Peter's Dome which has an excellent view of the Chequamegon Bay of Lake Superior and the Apostle Islands.

Trail Length: Morgan Falls - 0.6 miles (1.2 miles round trip); St. Peter's Dome - 1.8 miles (3.6 miles round trip).

What to Expect: The trail to Morgan Falls was reconstructed in 2002 to make it accessible for people with disabilities. The trail is graveled and the slopes are fairly flat. The trail to St. Peter's Dome is fairly rugged with quite a bit of exposed rocks in the trail tread and steep climbs. These trails are popular for snowshoeing.
