Michigan waterfalls are almost as abundant as its lakes. Although there aren’t quite as many waterfalls as lakes, the state is replete with them. Don’t be like TLC and “don’t go chasing waterfalls” because you will be missing out on some of the states natural wonders. Here are some Michigan waterfalls you should go chase today.
Michigan Waterfalls: 5 Waterfalls to go chasing
- Tahquamenon Falls
- Dead River Falls
- Chapel Falls
- Bond Falls
- Canyon Falls
Tahquamenon Falls is easily the best and most grandeur waterfall in all of Michigan. It’s potentially the second best waterfall east of the Mississippi behind Niagara Falls. What’s so great about this one? Changing landscapes with the seasons and a brewery that is at the trailhead.
Dead River Falls
I’ve mentioned Dead River Falls in a number of my previous posts and I am mentioning it again. When the water is flowing and the heat is turned up, this place is hard to beat. Incredible scenery and multiple levels of waterfalls, Dead River is probably the best waterfall for pure enjoyment and cliff jumping.
Chapel Falls/Chapel Beach Falls
Chapel Falls is nowhere near amazing as Tahquamenon Falls but neither are any other ones. What makes Chapel Falls list worthy is the scenery that surrounds it. Tucked away in the Pictured Rock National Seashore, Chapel Falls is located on one of the best hikes I’ve experienced in the region. Add 2 different viewing platforms and it’s a winner. If you are making the entire hike to Chapel Beach, you will see Chapel Beach Falls which empties onto the shores of Lake Superior.
Canyon Falls aka the Grand Canyon of Michigan is a breathtaking destination. Now this has no sizable comparison to the Grand Canyon but for Michigan standards, this is an amazing gorge to visit. Most people skip this one because its secluded so don’t skip Canyon Gorge.
Another impressive waterfall in Michigan’s lineup, Bond Falls is a favorite among local residents. An Western Upper Peninsula waterfall, Bond Falls is one of the most photographed waterfalls in the state. Measuring around 40 feet high and 100 feet wide, Bond Falls is a stunning waterfall that CANT be missed.
