Michigan Waterfalls were probably the unsung attractions of the Wolverine State. Perhaps a big reason why was that the state seemed to exhibit two different personalities as there were two distinct regions – the more familiar Lower Peninsula (shaped like a glove) and the lesser known Upper Peninsula (or UP).
In fact, all of the significant waterfalls that we’re aware of (let alone those that we’ve personally seen) are in the remote Upper Peninsula or UP, which you can see from the waterfall map above. Perhaps it’s a good thing that most of these waterfalls have been allowed to thrive in the less industrialized and less populated north.
After all, that allowed nature lovers like us to see a surprisingly natural and wild part of Michigan, which had a whole lot to offer such as the famed Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, long tracts of native forests (very nice when fall colors can be seen), and a small town charm that seemed appropriate for the slower pace of life here. It was the Michigan Waterfalls that exposed us to this side of the state that Julie and I are betting that not a whole lot of the Michigan residents in the lower part of the state would even bother to explore.
So far, our waterfall survey of Michigan came over only a few days. So I felt that it wasn’t adequate as we missed out on quite a few other worthwhile waterfalls in the state. Nevertheless, we’re chomping at the bit to make a return trip here as circumstances would allow, but in the mean time, have a look at the information we’re sharing about Michigan Waterfalls and hopefully you might find it beneficial for your own trip planning needs…
