Located on US-41 in Baraga County, this area is also known as the "Grand Canyon of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula". The trail is an easy walk along a combination of boardwalk (through swampy areas) and a well defined dirt trail passing through a mature forest. Soon, the trail parallels the Sturgeon River and we begin to see a series of cascading water sliding over black rock. A short distance later, is the viewing platform for Canyon Falls. The falls drop 15’ into the canyon. Beyond the falls the river has cut a gorge into the rocks, and a rustic trail continues along the rim of the gorge. We spent about two hours hiking and photographing the trail, the river, and the canyon. We didn’t regret using insect repellent! The parking lot has picnic tables and restrooms. This is a lovely area not to be missed.
