Morgan Falls/St. Peter’s Dome Trail – is just one of several premiere wilderness & wildlife viewing trails in Wisconsin’s north woods 

Located in the heart of Wisconsin’s wolf country is a hiking experience like no other.   

Morgan Falls / St. Peter’s Dome Trail is a 4 mile out and back trail located near Mellen, WI. The trail is only recommended for very experienced adventurers and primarily used for snowshoeing.

These popular trails are located in a non-motorized area. Highlights of the trail are the 70 foot high Morgan Falls and the overlook at the top of St. Peter’s Dome which has an excellent view of the Chequamegon Bay of Lake Superior and the Apostle Islands. Morgan Falls – 0.6 miles (1.2 miles round trip); St. Peter’s Dome – 1.8 miles (3.6 miles round trip). What to Expect: The trail to Morgan Falls was reconstructed in 2002 to make it accessible for people with disabilities. The trail is graveled and the slopes are fairly flat. The trail to St. Peter’s Dome is fairly rugged with quite a bit of exposed rocks in the trail tread and steep climbs. These trails are popular for snowshoeing

I am tenacious by nature, and passionate about the grey wolves I got to know through tracking them. But I found myself within a system of wolf-advocacy that wasnt for me. I am am artist and writer first and foremost. Tilseth has been a Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Volunteer Winter Wolf Tracker since the year 2000.
