- Water Source
- Black River
- Gogebic County, 2 miles north of Ramsay
- Several small drops and rapids are along hundreds of feet
of the river
- Go west on US-2 from the traffic signal in Wakefield for
2.2 miles to Blackjack Road. Go north (right) on
Blackjack Road to a pumping station (Northern Ratural
Gas. C..) less than a mile up the road on the right.
- "In a clearing across the road, follow the pipeline
down to the river. Before you reach the river, the trail
ends and you must go through some thick underbrush to
reach the banks. The falls is located about an eighth of
a mile upstream from where the pipeline crosses the
river." (Michigan Waterfalls, Penrose)
- Other Information
- (Note: Now I'm almost sure this is not Neepikon Falls
from the description of the falls as small drops and
rapids that was given in Michigan Waterfalls by
I'm not sure this picture is Neepikon Falls.
It may be part of Gabro Falls. I followed the directions,
which were to go down the hill from the highway and walk
a little upstream, but I found nothing. Then I went the
other direction, and I found this huge waterfall.
However, when I then went to Gabro Falls to take
another picture, I realized I was just across the river
from where I saw what I considered to be Neepikon Falls.
So I'm not sure about this one.
