Munising Falls

Water Source
Munising Creek
Alger county, Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, Munising
70 foot drop
From M-28 in Munising where it turns south, take H-58 east (Munising Avenue) for about 1 1/4 mile to Washington Street. Turn north (left) onto Washington Street for just over 1/2 mile to where the road bears right at the hospital. The falls parking area is across the street from the hospital. (You may follow the hospital signs to the parking area.)
An easy five minute walk on a paved path from the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore Visitors Center takes you to the viewing platform.
Other Information
I visited Munising Falls most recently on June 13, 1996. I had visited it over 20 years ago. At that time we were able to walk behind the falls because of a ledge over which the falls drop. Both the Michigan Waterfall book, 1988, and the Michigan Atlas & Gazetteer, 1991, indicate that you can walk behind the falls. However, when we were there in June, 1996, it appeared that the trail was blocked. There were wooden steps and walkways part of the way to the falls, but they ended before reaching the falls themselves.
Munising Falls is considered one of the seven "Notable Falls" in Michigan listed in the Michigan Atlas & Gazetteer by Delorme Mapping.
