After parking in the large parking lot, one can walk down a paved hiking trail to the upper falls. The roar of the waterfall can be heard well before it can be seen. There are a couple of viewing areas before you actually get to the one above the falls.
Another trail, going downstream from the falls, will take you to a wooden staircase going down to the river bottom, where you will find a boardwalk, taking you back toward the falls with more dramatic views.
The upper falls have a drop of nearly 50 feet and are more than 200 feet across, which makes them one of the largest waterfalls east of the Mississippi.
All of Michigan state parks require a motor vehicle permit to enter. A daily permit for residents is $6, and for non-residents, it is $8. We just went here for the day, but if you plan on visiting several other state parks over several days, an annual permit might be a better deal. It is $24 for residents and $29 for non-residents.
