Overview

The Wagner Creek cascades over rock ledges in this area before emptying into the Anna River, creating a beautiful scenic spot. Wagner Creek falls over a stratum of erosion-resistant dolomite into order to flow into a shallow gorge containing the Anna River. The Anna, soon afterwards, flows northward into Lake Superior. The ledges and waterfalls that occur in this area, and throughout this region, are due to its underlying geology: a hard, resistant cap rock (siliceous dolomite) that overlays a much weaker and more easily eroded sandstone. This is an outstanding scenic spot durin the color season. This scenic waterfall is nestled amongst virgin pine and hemlock trees. There is a small parking area and a half-mile trail with an observation deck overlooking the falls. Wagner Falls Scenic Site is also a great place for hiking. The North Country Trail follows M-94 at Wagner Falls and enters the Hiawatha National Forest two miles west of the scenic site, allowing visitors to truly experience the beauty of the Upper Peninsula.
