Summary: The largest of the "foot" Falls in Marinette County. Dave's Falls is much easier to visit, as is the far more impressive Long Slide Falls.

This is a wild waterfall. There are no fences or railings. There are also not a lot of good vantage points for this falls. It is about a 10 minute hike to the falls along a somewhat rough and uneven trail. The trail ends at the top of the falls.

The easiest way to find this waterfall is to first visit Twelve Foot Falls. You will find signs for Twelve Foot Falls on both US 141 south of Pembine and US 8 west of Pembine. From Twelve Foot Falls take a right and drive about 1/2 mile. You will reach a rough Y in the road. Head right and take the first right. There is a sign for 18 Foot Falls on the second right. This short, rough dirt road ends at a small turn around. Park here and look for the trail to the left. Here is some help from MapQuest.
