  • Worth the short drive from town. Impressive falls located fairly close to the parking area. Parking area not real big so later in the season that could be an issue. Shirt duration trip.  more »
  • A beautiful little waterfall tucked into a hillside. It is a bit of a walk for those with walking issues. However, it was doable for us to at least to the viewing point at the bottom of the falls...  more »
  • I'm addicted to waterfalls and this one was pretty cool. Hard to beat the UP MI for water fall hunting!
  • Very crowded and is much less impressive than other nearby waterfalls. I recommend Miners Falls and Chapel Falls instead.
