The Upper Falls on the Potato River in Gurney flow Wednesday morning. The river drops a total of 40 feet through several stages of the Upper Falls. Immediately downstream and accessible by a different trail from the same parking lot are the Lower Falls, which drop another 50 feet. The parking lot is a mile and a half to the west of Wisconsin 169, on a road that aptly travels through potato fields. The path to the Upper Falls led to a set of stairs - numbering 131 - down to an observation platform. Also Wednesday, the Iron County Highway Department was working on the access road to the falls. The river winds to the west and empties into the Bad River at Copper Falls State Park.
