Unnamed Falls: Morgan Creek

Water Source
Morgan Creek
2 1/2 miles southwest of Marquette
20 foot drop
From Marquette where US-41/M-28 makes a 90 degree turn near Lake Superior, go about .5 miles south (to the right facing the lake) to a signal light at Genesee Street. Turn right (west) onto Genesee Street and go one block to Division street (which becomes Co. Rd. 553) and go almost 2 miles. Just before you get to the Marquette Mountain Ski resort (just before the "Pass with Care" sign) turn right onto a trail road and go 1.3 miles to a small turnout on the left of the road (shown above) that is marked by an orange cone (also shown above). Park there and walk down the hill a short distance to the falls, which you can hear from the road.
Other Information
I visited the Unnamed Falls on Morgan Creek Falls 3 October 1991 and took the larger photo above. I revisited the falls 29 November 2006 and took the other photos. Although I was looking for the cone on the hillside on the right side of the road, I missed it and didn't see it until my way out. If you miss the cone and come to the bridge, which is .4 miles farther down the road, you can visit Morgan Falls at the bridge and then turn around and stop .4 miles back at the turnout for the Unnamed Falls.
