As the Slate River empties out of a deep gorge it has one final, impressive setting to flow through. Slate River Falls is an idyllic tumble into a deep pool surrounded by steep banks and towering trees. The waterfall itself is a bit odd, two angled streams of waters plunging down a layered tilt of rock, but the view is quite striking. Getting past this drop to the upstream waterfalls is a bit difficult and involves a tough climb either up the side of the falls or all the way up the east bank.
Park on either side of the bridge over Slate River, about 11 miles east of L'Anse on Skanee Road. Follow the river upstream past to Slate River Falls. There are three more named drops upstream, Ecstasy, Slide, and Kukuck's, that are well worth the tough and wet hike along Slate River.
