Why So Many Waterfalls?
Located within the city limits of Munising where Washington Street becomes Sand Point Road, near Munising Memorial Hospital.
Walk the paved 800-foot trail up a cool shaded canyon along Munising Creek to the base of the falls. Two sets of stairs lead to platforms to view the 50-foot waterfall as it drops over a sandstone cliff. Watch for ferns, wildflowers, and an occasional mink. In winter, the waterfall exhibits dramatic ice formations.
Please stay on the paved trail. Walking into or behind the falls is prohibited. Pets are allowed on the trail.
The parking lot is located about four miles north of H-58 off Miners Castle Road. The hike from the parking area to the waterfall is 1.2 miles round-trip.
A gravel path through the northwoods leads to two overlooks. Enjoy the Miners Falls Nature Trail and views of the Miners Basin along the way. The fast-flowing Miners River drops about 50 feet over a sandstone outcrop, creating the park's most powerful waterfall.
There are 64 steps down to the lower viewing platform at the falls. This is an especially beautiful trail in the springtime with abundant wildflowers. Use the Miners Falls Trail Guide to learn more about the environment. Pets are allowed on the trail.
Located about a half-mile northeast of Miners Beach along the Pictured Rocks cliffs.
Located about one mile west of Grand Marais on Alger County Road H-58.
Sable Falls tumbles 75 feet over a cascading slope of Munising and Jacobsville sandstone formations on its way to Lake Superior. The best viewing is from the bottom of a long staircase of 169 steps. The trail from the parking area to this staircase is a short one.
The trail continues past the falls for about 1/4 mile to a rock beach where Sable Creek flows into Lake Superior.
Pets allowed on the steps and trail to the falls and out to the beach.
