A short 0.7 mile out-and-back trail leads to the Montreal River and offers beautiful views of Interstate Falls.
Interstate Falls is a popular 18-foot waterfall on the Montreal River which forms the border between Wisconsin and Michigan. The parcel NWLT purchased, and then transferred to the town, includes about 38 acres of scenic mixed forest and about 2,500 feet of natural shoreline frontage on the Montreal River, a Class II trout stream.
In December of 2015, NWLT purchased the land and gifted it to the Town of Kimball in June of 2016.
