Black Bear falls is an ephemeral or temporary waterfall located within Devil’s Lake State Park that only flows at certain times, and usually not for long. It’s located in a “wild” gorge area known as “Pine Hollow” on the south-western corner of the park. While beautiful, there are no trails, no cell service and folks who do venture into the area face challenges including; high cliffs, loose rock & talus fields, rattlesnakes and even flash flooding. Suffice to say, for most people video is the best way to see the falls.
** To those of you who do venture into Pine Hollow. Please do not mark trees with marking tape or leave other signs, garbage or whatever in the valley. Remember, respect this unique public land & leave only footprints!
