DRIVING DIRECTIONS: Take EXIT4 from HWY101, travelling west along the Evangeline Trail (HWY1) for 2.1km, turning left onto Salmon Hole Dam Road (just past the bridge at St. Croix Dam Falls). Follow this road 2.4km to where Starks Lake Brook crosses underneath the road, and park.

TRAIL DESCRIPTION:Hike upstream or along the side of the brook to these small cascades. While not the largest of falls, the mature forest surrounding you is quite stunning, and the continued hike up to Starks Lake beyond the cascades leads to ample fishing oppurtunities.
