This beautiful waterfall is 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 for additional views of 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. Wheelchairs may be able to get up the slightly uphill-sloped trail to the main viewing platform, depending on ability. Leashed pets allowed on trail and viewing platforms.

Drinking water is available seasonally. A flush toilet is open year-round.
