Interstate Falls

Interstate Falls

Hurley, Wisconsin

Interstate Falls is an 18-foot waterfall on the Montreal River, along the Wisconsin / Michigan border, at the edge of the City of Ironwood, Michigan, and Hurley, Wisconsin. A 0.3 mile trail through hardwood-hemlock forest leads to the falls, and is a popular attraction to residents and visitors of the Gogebic Range.

With the 38.7 acres of land currently for sale, future access to the river and waterfall is in jeopardy.

Interstate Falls is a scenic attraction for both locals and visitors to the Gogebic Range, and is featured in many books and waterfall guides. Winter visitors enjoy snowshoeing to the falls. Others use the trail to access the Montreal River to fish for brook trout in the spring and summer.


To visit the falls, look for the small “Peterson Falls” sign on the north side of US Route 2, on the Wisconsin side, about a quarter mile west of the state line. Follow the unpaved road (Center Drive) a quarter mile to the trailhead marked with a “Falls” sign and two parking spaces. Follow the trail to the north to visit Interstate Falls. Trail is 0.3 mile long.

To find Peterson Falls, from the same waterfall trailhead, go east just a little farther on the road, then follow the next trail on the north side. That trail soon turns and heads east 0.3 mile to Peterson Falls.
