Just outside of Eagle River and the more popular Eagle River Falls is the Ten Foot Falls. This is a very fun destination with a swimming pool under the falls. Large boulders and rocks make the river swift and bubbly as it drops off the 10 foot edge. Swimming in the pool and dunking yourself under the waterfall is a favorite of locals.
Once in the town on Phoenix, turn left on M-26 off of US-41. Drive 0.8 miles and there is parking to the falls off the shoulder of the road. The falls are easily accessible from the parking lot as they are only a few yards away.
