  Balmoral Spillway:  View Video
Latitude: 43.22363   Longitude: -90.46681
A very small dam creates a quite small ripple (rapids).  And downstream about 50 yards there is another small ripple.  Not worth stopping to look!  The stream here is called Mill Creek, so maybe at some time in the past there was a Mill here that created a dam larger than what is currently in the creek.  Just west of the town of Orion is the intersection of Routes 60 and 80... go west on 60 1.7 miles and turn right on Route 193... 0.33 miles north on Route 193 a dead end road called Dam Lane will take you to this site.

  Cazenovia Falls:  View Video
A beautiful sight... an overall drop of 20-25 feet.  Don't miss stopping to see this one.  There is a small parking lot adjacent to the falls... be careful... there are no railings to keep you from falling over the edge!  They built the spillway for Lee Lake and used existing natural rock to make a marvelous effluent falls.  Lee Lake is formed from Cazenovia Branch which then flows into the Baraboo River.   The lake and falls are on the north side of the town of Cazenovia.

  Pine River Rapids:  View Video
Latitude: 43.33561   Longitude: -90.39151
Pine River Rapids is located in the town of Richland Center.  County Road Q goes west from the center of Richland Center... one block west of U.S. Route 14 Road Q crosses the Pine River... just upstream (north) of the bridge is the rapids.  There is a large parking lot another block west of the bridge.  There are park benches available if you want to stop and rest awhile.

Links & Helpful Hints...
Before you visit a waterfall it is helpful to know the surrounding landscape... we use two free internet services to help.  www.topoquest.com provides free topo maps which can be enlarged and printed.  Access Topoquest and then click "find maps" on their website, put in GPS from our data (without the minus sign), click "search", then click on the first USGS map that has a DRG name, click on the map itself and select zoom level.  To navigate the area... if you want to look at an area left of the map, click on the left edge of the map, etc.  Below each map will be a listing of features shown on the map... a little work and you will learn their system (sometime clicking on the edge will not take you to an adjacent map).
---------------
We also use Google Earth.  It is a free service you can download at https://www.google.com/earth/.  Like Topoquest, you put in GPS data (or city, or county and state) and it will "fly" you to the location requested. 
---------------
There are lots of internet sites that list facts about Wisconsin... one of the best is the Wisconsin DNR site http://dnr.wi.gov/ which has all kinds of info.  Another good site is www.discoverwisconsin.com.
