  • To think that something like this exists in our great state of Michigan. This was fabulous to see and we even saw some people climb down the cliff to get a closer look. We were there in August visitin...  more »
  • Beautiful Waterfall, doesn't take long on the little trail to go see it. One of several in the area worth seeing.  more »
  • After hearing about this attraction during the shoreline tour, I went to see these falls. It's a bit of a hike from the parking lot out to the falls and back but it is worth the effort.  more »

  • As we walked back to our car a fellow sightseer asked if it was worth the hike. My husband and I said 'absolutely!' The hike was beautiful, several rocks and roots, but easily done with Bob stroller, 0.6 miles each way with markers 1-11 letting you know how far you've gone. You will want to take the steps down to the viewing platform at the end. I see photos people have taken from the bottom of the falls, but I'm not sure how you would safely get down there... perhaps an unmarked trail.
  • Amazing. We did a 4 day tour including about a dozen starting in Hurley going thru Munsing, Marquette over to Mackinaw. Miners was a nice walk and loved seeing and hearing the falls.
  • Great falls for a waterfall touring event.
  • Long walk but its worth it. The picture was taken from the top of the falls
  • One of my favorite waterfalls in Michigan! Easy hike
