The Ultimate Michigan Waterfalls Road Trip is Right Here – And You’ll Want To Do It

You’ve been planning a road trip in the UP for the longest time, but you just hadn’t quite figured out how to maximize your time. Do you zigzag from one quaint mining town to the next? Do you focus in on one specific area? How about tour one of Michigan’s unsung heroes, our state’s gorgeous waterfalls. All but maybe one of the some 200 waterfalls in the Mitten are in the Upper Peninsula.

We’ve ID’d some of the very best, which will take you from close to the Wisconsin border, east to nearly the full length of the UP, all in a day-long trip. The trip takes just over eight hours to complete. We have included a link to the Google Map here.

What a trip. And the great thing is, we’ve covered so much ground in the UP, including some gorgeous falls on Lake Superior, some stops at popular state and national park space, and some inland waterfalls that are no less beautiful to gaze upon.

While it’s still early in the year, we encourage you to plan ahead for your next springtime adventure.
