Interstate Falls is a picturesque 18-foot-high waterfall near the cities of Ironwood, Michigan and Hurley, Wisconsin. The waterfall is on the Montreal River which serves as the border of Wisconsin and Michigan. The parking area for this waterfall is located off U.S. Highway 2 just east of Ironwood on Center Drive.

Access to the falls is quite easy via a well-maintained wide dirt trail. Dogs are allowed on this trail; however, ATVs, snowmobiles, and horses are not. It is about a third of a mile from the parking lot to the falls. The trail is level for the most part, except for a couple of small hills to navigate near the falls. There are several side trails along the way that lead to the river, but it is easy to follow the main trail. There is a viewing area at the top of the falls and a set of stairs lead to a very nice viewing platform below the falls.
