“Waterfall heaven”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

Great trails and views, and fairly easy hikes. WE walked both sides of the river and all the way down to Lake Superior over the suspension bridge.

“River and Falls offer amazing views”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

Paths are very well marked, but beware that it is approximately a 1/2 mile of stairs and hills. Well worth the walk but good shoes and water are a must! Mostly through woods so have some good insect repellent and layers of clothes for hiking and you should be all set. The falls offered amazing pictures and views to Lake Superior!

Really neat trails that are easy to walk on and the boardwalks next to the waterfalls make site seeing easy and enjoyable. What great parks in Michigan!
