Upper and Lower Tahquamenon Falls is a 10.2 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Newberry, Michigan that features a waterfall. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for hiking and walking.
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
Awesome trail! Be sure to bring your swimsuit!
Beautiful scenery, nice spots for taking pictures and overall an easy trek.
Upper and lower falls are beautiful. The trails are well marked and have boardwalks near the falls. The trails is approximately 4.8 miles one way. We were there early in the day and not many other hikers. If you go later in the day, there is a shuttle between the upper and lower falls making it only the 4.8 mile hike. We only did about 2 miles near the lower falls and the trail was peaceful. As we had another hike planned for later, we drove up to the upper falls.
Well worth the visit to Tahquamenon Falls State Park.
A beautiful waterfall! The lower falls portion offers canoes to cross the river.
