Quick Facts
Spray Falls is about 1.75 miles northeast of Chapel Beach along the cliffs
A dramatic waterfall that plunges off the cliffs into Lake Superior

Spray Falls plunges about 70 feet over the Pictured Rocks cliffs directly into Lake Superior. This remote waterfall is best viewed from the water as there is limited viewing access from the North Country Scenic Trail (from the Chapel trailhead it's a 9.6 mile round trip hike; from the Little Beaver trailhead, it's just under 8 miles round trip.) The 1856 shipwreck "Superior" lies at the base of the falls in 20 feet of water.

Pictured Rocks Cruises offers boat tours daily in summer that go to Spray Falls.

Pets are prohibited on all trails in the Spray Falls area.
