#7 of 18 in Nature in Munising
Tannery Falls is a waterfall on Tannery Creek located near the city of Munising, Michigan. The Falls are also sometimes called the Rudy M. Olson Memorial Falls. The grave site of Rudolf Olsen can be seen on the path leading to the falls alongside a set of stairs. Tannery Creek flows behind a small residential area before reaching The falls which drop 40ft into an impressive sandstone canyon. There is a cave behind the falls. The level of water coming over the falls can vary greatly depending on snow melt or rainfall. Tannery Falls is one of the less-advertised and less-maintained falls in the area. For a number of years, the falls were under private ownership. The land around the area was purchased by the Michigan Nature Association which created a public nature preserve that includes the nearby Memorial Falls.

  • There are signs keeping people from going into the wsterfall but I say as long as you respect nature and leave it better then you found it there is no issue. Small hike to it, but well worth the view
  • Nice waterfall and hike back to it. The directions are a little confusing to get there and is not called Twin Falls.
