The centerpiece of Tahquamenon Falls State Park's 50,000 acres is the Tahquamenon River with its waterfalls. The Upper Falls, one of the largest waterfalls east of the Mississippi has a drop of nearly 50 feet, more than 200 feet across and a water flow of more than 50,000 gallons per second.

Lots of stairs but beautiful hike--the views of the upper falls are fantastic! Easy to moderate (because of stairs).

Beautiful trail, but very muddy and more difficult because of the mud. Ended up taking the shuttle back at Lower Falls instead of hiking back, as 5 miles took 3 hours. Would definitely recommend hiking boots for this one! Beautiful trail, lots of climbs and descents, gorgeous scenery and nature.

Great trail. Walked from the upper to the lower. Lots of tree roots and muddy areas. Take bug spray a, hat , water and a camera. Take it slow. Hilly, steps . Beautiful trail.

Hiked from Upper to Lower. Excellent hike. Nicely maintained trails and beautiful scenery. Got there at 9:30 and had the trail all to ourselves the first 2 miles. Moderate rating was accurate. A few mosquitos but as long as you expect bugs and come prepared, it doesn't detract from the experience at all. Shuttle is available to take you back to Upper falls if you're not up for the 4.5 mile return trip but make sure you have cash on you, it's a little expensive.

Loved it. Mosquitoes weren't too bad. Beautiful views.

An excellent introduction for younger hikers - an easy walk in the woods with a beautiful reward at the end.

Main trail is paved, but there are other trail options- including a jaunt out & back on the NCT. Highly recommend finding the lower traffic areas. One star off for the touristy feel of the entire place & extremely high traffic areas. The falls themselves are gorgeous & well worth the trip. I recommend taking the nature trail from the upper falls parking lot & approaching them from afar- rather than funneling in with the crowd. Late afternoon seemed a much better time to be there population-wise. It was packed around 11am.

Very scenic. Paved and high traffic
