Waterfalls - Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota

I put together a GPS file that contains waypoints for many of the waterfalls in the UP of Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. I thought it would be interesting for riders to submit photos of these falls. Many riders live close to some of these sites, and many others travel through these areas on their rides.



I'll publish a list in one of these posts that will indicate who posted photos for which falls so we know what is documented and what is not. Don't hesitate to submit additional photos of a falls already covered. Views change with the seasons and varied views are useful.


Some of the falls can be viewed by driving right up to them. These are marked with a vehicle icon. Some require a short walk on a park or wayside trail. These are marked with a camera icon. Some require short runs of bushwhacking or a long hike on a trail. These are marked with a hiking icon.

Minneapolis Area


MN North Shore


Northwest WI


Western UP


Central UP


Keweenaw


Northeast WI


Green Bay Area


Some of the waypoints may need refinement, so if you get a better GPS fix when you visit a waterfall, please include that information with your photo post.

For some of the more obscure locations, I may be able to provide more clues about the hike in. PM to see if I have more information.

This fille can used like some others I have prepared (historical markers, heritage sites, etc) as part of background information for planning your own ride. Compare your route with the waypoints in this file and pull off waterfalls that you might want to visit that are proximate to your route.

The GPS file can be downloaded here.

BOND FALLS -- The beauty of Upper Michigan is making national headlines once again.

According the CNN, Bond Falls is one of the top ten waterfalls in the United States. These falls are located on the Ontonagon River in the western Upper Peninsula, two and a half miles east of Paulding on Bond Falls Road.

Bond Falls has a 40-foot drop, extending 100 feet wide then dividing into smaller cascades. This Michigan state scenic site is very accessible, with a boardwalk leading visitors to a viewing point.
For the full list of top ten waterfalls, click here.

Someone could get a better shot of this I'm sure.


Interesting bridge crosses at the falls (now an ORV trail).

I remembered that I had a couple of routes put together for waterfall tours in NE WI that I never got around to proof riding. I put the files up for download if someone wants to give them a spin.
