Rock River Falls
(You may click on
the image to see a larger version.)
- Water Source
- Rock River
- 5 miles northwest of Chatham
- 20 foot drop
- From M-94 where it makes a 90 degree turn in Chatham,
turn onto Rock River Road and go north for 3.5 miles,
cross the Rock River, and then go another .1 mile to
USFS-2276 (this road may have been renamed). The road is
narrow and rocky but in good condition. Turn left (west)
and go about 4.3 miles (it jogs sharply left at 3.6
miles) to a small parking area on the left marked by a
sign pointing the way to the trail to Rock River Falls.
- The 3/4 mile path is mostly downhill, and the ground
becomes wet as you reach the bottom.
- Other Information
- As I recall (I was here 10/1/89) I went to this falls
with my son John. He suggested we take his pickup truck
rather than my car, because the road was pretty rough.
Since he was driving, I can't vouch for these directions,
which I got from Penrose's Michigan Waterfalls book. I
know some of the US Forest Service roads were renumbered
when I went on them from the numbers in their book. But
that usually didn't cause any problem - just look for a
forest road in the area they describe.
