Great loop with multiple water fall spots. Bring plenty of water, it gets humid and has some uphill spots. Great to walk along creek most the way and cool to see old the water pipe still there, although with plenty of leaky spots. Went on a Saturday and wasn’t very busy, only saw a few other hikers and a few bikers. Great hike with dogs. Also lots of other trails to take that connect and good maps along the way to help.

We hiked this trail today with our dog. There are several trails intersecting and this route was fairly easy to follow but did not go by this name. The waterfall was gushing, Trail was dry and well kept. It does narrow quite a bit and we saw a half dozen trail bikes out and one trail runner. My only reason for a 4 is the road noise that can be heard for several sections.

Nice scenic trail. Moderately busy - was there on a weekday afternoon and met a couple runners and five or six mountain bikers - all very friendly and considerate (had my dog with me).

I’ve lived in Marquette 45 years and never knew this waterfall was just off Wright street. Great hike.
