Florence County contains 2 of the original 3 state designated Wild Rivers. The 100 mile Up North Wisconsin Wild Rivers Tour provides highway signs that guide you to 15 different access points on the Pine and Popple Wild Rivers in northern Wisconsin. The term 'Wild' refers to the undeveloped shorelines along these rivers. While there are several class III rapids and 8 waterfalls ranging in size from 5 foot Bull Falls up to 60 foot, 3-tiered Breakwater Falls, there are numerous stretches suitable for beginning paddlers. There are signed portages around the challenging river stretches. The access points can be used by fishermen, hiker's, photographers, birders, and berry or mushrooms pickers.
