Trail was hard to find, but leaving a review because we used others reviews to help us find the trails! The trailhead is on Nestor Street, and there is a sign you’ll see from the Michigan Nature Association that marks the start. Park on Cleveland Street, which is right before the trail. Once in the trail, follow the blue diamonds to Olson Falls! A short walk that you do have to watch your step for. Very cool how close you get to come to the falls!

Found this trail “by accident”. Wasn’t expecting it to be so awesome. Hard to find the trail head, but worth the hike!

Parking was hard to find. Park near Nestor and Cleveland intersection and walk down Nestor. I’d rate this as moderate, although it was a hot day. Definitely need some good shoes to do both Falls there.

Did this as a loop with the other fellas near by. Took about 30 min for both. Well worth the time and effort. Both are beautiful.

Absolutely fantastic loop. There are a variety of trailheads - 3 I think. I didn’t even realize there was another fall (tannery falls) until we found the last (“true”) trailhead. Fantastically fun hike and great, quiet piece of heaven. Very under-traveled. *its also known as memorial falls
