“Wild man - this place is Wild”
Reviewed March 26, 2012

If you find this place and you are adventurous, you will love the miles of untouched wilderness and great fishing and hunting, if you are quiet - you might even glimpse a moose

“wild but walkable”
Reviewed August 17, 2011

Bushy Falls on the Yellow Dog River is an easy 1 mile walk in from a gravel road. It is easily photographed and a shallow pool at the bottom of the falls is safe for swimming for adults and older kids. Thimbleberries were out, providing a tasty snack right on the trail.
This beautiful river is a great risk from potential nickel mining in the area. Sulfur dioxide run off would all but kill it, so see it now and perhaps be moved enough to help folks trying to save this wild spot just a half hour or so from downtown Marquette.
