Cool views, easy hike. Be sure to hike to both the upper and lower falls. Nice picnic area available with access to potable water.

So pretty! I hiked this short trail during the week of Thanksgiving 2017. There was quite a bit of snow and the falls were beautiful! I can’t believe of all the times I have been to this area I have never made this quick hike. Very flat, easy, great photo ops. Only saw one other person there, I am guessing it is pretty deserted once snow starts falling.

If you get off the trail and walk, climb the rocks at the river's edge it's fantastic! Great photo ops too

gorgeous falls, and some of the best cliff jumping in the UP. 2 different locations with heights from 5-34'. that's measured, not a guess!
If you aren't sure where to jump look for the ropes, or just ask anyone there!

Love this spot. Short hike with spectacular rock formation for Michigan. Cliff jumping spots as well.

Great hike. Wear water shoes to walk down the river to the falls. Hike past the main falls. You won't be disappointed.
