Tahquamenon Upper Falls

Observation platform

To get to Tahquamenon Falls drive from the Mackinaw Bridge I75 to M-123, the highway offers a loop from Highway M-28 through Paradise, past Tahquamenon Falls State Park, through Newberry and back to M-28.  The Tahquamenon Falls State Park is the Tahquamenon River.

Tahquamenon Falls State Park has about 52,000 acres.  The Upper Falls is one of the largest waterfalls east of the Mississippi. It has a drop of nearly 50 feet and is more than 200 feet across. A maximum flow of more than 50,000 gallons of water per second has been recorded cascading over its precipice.

There is a paved pathway (.4 mile) that leads from the parking lot at the Upper Falls, through forest to the observation platforms at the Falls. Steps lead to the bottom of the falls where the water crashes into the Tahquamenon River. There is a 4 mile hiking trail along the river to the Lower Falls.
