Qunicy Falls is an interesting series of waterfalls along a sandstone creek that empties near the old Quincy Mill. While the creek is cluttered with brush, boulders, and remains of past mining ventures there are four drops that stick out. The lower waterfall is a short plunge over a sandstone ledge right before the creek flows under an old railroad grade. Next drop is an even pour over a short, old dam that slides through a chute and fans over a spherical sandstone feature. The third drop is a small cascade near a bend that splatters and plunges over a series of ledges. The upper waterfall is the tallest by far, a plunging drop over sandstone almost eight feet in height.
The ruins near the mouth of the creek is also worth exploring. A huge old mill, the roof mostly caved in, shows just how active this area once was. A few more buildings stretch out to the north, along with some piles of poor rock and old railroad foundations. Also, the famous Quincy Dredge sits out in Torch Lake, a mere stone's throw from the creek.
Park on the north side of the large old mill, about 2.4 miles north of Dollar Bay. Follow the trail upstream, making your way around the crumbling piles of poor rock. The trail ends at the top of the railroad grade (now an ATV trail) but the waterfalls start below. Head down to the creek, making your way upstream to the falls. Some inconsistent footpaths are up along the north side of the creek, but they are hard to make out and do not go all the way to the upper waterfall.
