So!! It's not a 4 mile hike between the falls, it's more like 5 or more. And I'm ok with that. What I didn't like was the fact they charge you $20 to get back to your car if you don't walk the other 5+ miles back to where you came from!!!! I asked a stranger for a ride back... More

We enjoyed a perfect afternoon at both the Lower and Upper Falls parks. The Lower Falls offers a very well run and friendly row boat rental for $7 that allows you to paddle around all day if you wish and gets you easily over to the walkway trail to the falls. You can walk the whole loop trail from the... More

Both the Upper and Lower Falls are beautiful. Walkways around both falls are nice and smooth, but be warned that there are lots of stairs at the upper falls. I took the four mile hike between the falls with two ten-year old girls and three teenagers -- the four mile hike was really nice, but there were a lot of... More

On our way to Munising from Macinaw city, we took a short detour to see Tahquamenon falls, arguably the most popular among many UP gorgeous waterfalls. It is very scenic and beautiful but I will remember the place for a long long time for the mosquitoes over there. We were literally running, jumping, shouting,dancing on the small trek to the...

I have been wanting to visit the falls for a few years now. I had no idea how much fun I would have exploring them! I love that you can walk out onto the lower falls and play in the water. We had a blast! The walk back to the upper falls was nice too! We will definitely be back... More

Absolutely beautiful. First time back since I was a kid. Waterfalls are serene. Nice paved paths. Can make it into a hike though. Good for kids, not too many bugs.

Really beautiful falls and a nice and easy walk to view them. They were enjoyed by my whole family including my husband who had never seen them even though he grew up in the UP.

We stayed in the lower falls hemlock campground. This trip was more than i expected for a camping trip. There was so much to do. We hiked the lower falls to the upper falls. It was a 4 mile hike in the woods and well worth it. Although i wouldnt hike it with younger childeren. It was muddy, lots of... More

It is a beautiful walk to see the upper falls. You can walk down onto a platform and be right next to the falls. Great for pictures! There is also a restaurant and gift shop at the upper falls. Those are both pretty nice. The lower falls are a lot of fun too. You can rent a row boat and... More

This is a must see when in U.P. of Michigan. We stop here every time we are are in the area, and enjoy the quit walk back to the falls. The falls are majestic. It's interesting to see how the falls are different each time. Depending on the season and the amount of rain the water color and flow can... More
