The quintessential drive-by waterfall!
Highway 61 transverses the Cross River mid-falls, making for a full falls view as you motor along. But by all means, get out and walk across the bridge for the full on, in your face perspective. For another vantage point of the river and its canyon, head to the south side of the highway, and look downstream. With headwaters at Cross Lake, these falls flow throughout the year, and ice up beautifully in the winter.
Photo tip: hold your camera lens in front of a round wrought iron hole in the fence.
Cross River is at Hwy 61 mile marker 78.9 in Schroeder.
