Waterfalls

Waterfalls

As you travel the Keweenaw Peninsula, take time to see at least one of our 10 waterfalls. These natural wonders roar to life after the spring snowmelt and are beautiful throughout the year, even when winter ice and snow quiet them.

Choose your waterfall adventure:

  • The largest drops include the lowermost Hungarian Falls and Eagle River Falls, both at 60 feet.
  • Two falls can be seen from your car: Haven Falls Park and Jacob’s Falls.
  • Well-worth the hike: You can reach the six to seven drops of the Hungarian Falls along a 1.5-mile trail. Or take a one-mile, winding shoreline trail to the Montreal Falls (which you also can access by kayak or canoe on Lake Superior).
  • Watch your footing: Many of our waterfalls can be enjoyed up close but be sure to watch for slippery rocks that can cause falls and injuries. Tread carefully!
  • Bring your camera: You’ll never see the same waterfall twice thanks to the ever-changing volume of water. Slower shutter speeds help to capture the movement of the water. Take as many pictures as you’d like but be careful not to lose your footing or drop your camera in the water!
  • Don’t miss the rainbow: On a sunny day, a waterfall’s spray can create beautiful rainbows that will take your breath away. Suspended water droplets help to refract sunlight creating a spectacular display of colors.
  • Stay in a solar-powered cabin at the Conglomerate Falls near Calumet. A small cabin is available for rent and can serve as your base for fishing and birding along a quarter-mile of the Gratiot River.
