The fast-flowing Miners River drops about 50 feet over a sandstone outcrop, creating the park's most powerful waterfall. A small parking lot is located 1/2 mile off Miners Castle Road (H-11), 4 miles north of Alger County Road H-58. The walk from the parking area to the waterfall is 0.6 miles one way. (Vehicles longer than 32 feet should not try to access this parking lot.)  A seasonal vault toilet is at the parking lot.

The gently-rolling gravel and dirt path through the forest leads to an upper and a lower overlook. There are 64 steps down to the lower viewing platform. 

This is an especially beautiful trail in the springtime with abundant wildflowers, and also during fall color season. Leashed pets allowed.
