  • Munising Falls itself (the waterfall) isn't that impressive compared to the other falls in the region, but what this trail offers that others don't is an extremely up close look at the sandstone earth formations that make up the national Pictured Rocks lakeshore. The drive in is easy and the hike is easy too. Take the stairs, it's worth it.
  • Nice close up view of the falls. Easy access makes it one of the more crowded falls in the area. Staff at store was helpful and knowledgeable
  • It was a nice place.. Very easy walk.. And nice little store at bottom
