Great place to visit, especially in the fall with colors coming on Good trails/well marked. A little difficult for someone like me with a knee problem, but still well worth it.

You can get to this falls easily on the path provided... it's worth every step, you can walk out into the falls in some spots!

We walked the trail to Canyon Falls and saw the beauty that was all along its riverside. We also saw Canyon Gorge just as beautiful as the pictures that I had seen advertise for it. Definitely go if you can!!

Wow, who would have believed that this gorgeous place was in the Upper Penisula of Michigan! It is a short hike to the Falls but, if you are in good health, hiking further is a must. Absolutely worth your time!
