Chippewa Falls

Water Source
Black River
Gogebic County, 8-12.5 miles north of Bessemer
10 foot drop in several sections
Turn north onto County Road 513 (leading to the Black River Harbor area) from US-2 in Bessemer and go about 8.8 miles to a fork. Take the right fork for about a mile to the Copper Peak Ski Hill area. Go just past the gift shop, turn right, and follow the to the end of the cleared field, which is the landing zone for the ski jumpers.
There is no trail; head straight from the end of the landing zone down to the river. "There is no marked trail, so we suggest that you mark a trail (we leave red tags and remove them on the way out) on the difficult quarter-mile walk down to the falls" (Michigan Waterfalls, Penrose).
Other Information
"On a quiet day you can hear the waterfall from the top of the hill."
