Johnson falls















LOCATION: Extreme western end of Pine lake. There is a trail branching off from the portage trail to Canoe lake. Also, you can paddle closer to the outlet of the small creek and there will be trails spider webbing everywhere but, they all eventually converge and lead back to the falls.

I did this watercolor of Johnson Falls way back in the day when I was in college. This was probably close to 20 years ago.

Sometimes less is more...I like to see the detail in the rocks, and the quieter falls makes it an idyllic setting

If you just head downstream from the lower falls on the right hand side where the creek starts spider webbing into smaller rivulets. maybe 60+ yards from the falls???

Here's some more help.....

This video should definitively show how to find the colossal cedar tree from Lower Johnson Falls.
