Mulligan Falls is one of those remote, wild waterfalls that has no easy access point. There are no established trails through the overgrown banks, not even a game path. But at 40 feet in height and with multiple drops, all different from the last, the incentive is too good to pass up.
Welcome to the Huron Mountains.
That’s the message we received when we crested the top of the Blind 35 Hill. No special platform, no group of people. Just simply the mountains.
Thomas Rock, previously known as Gobbler’s Knob, may not have the 360-degree views that the neighboring Sugarloaf Mountain has, but it still offers something spectacular.
We visited the top of the world! Well, Michigan’s top of the world.
At 1,979 feet above sea level, Mount Arvon is Michigan’s highest point. It resides in the Huron Mountain range, a wild and untamed area that stretches roughly from Marquette to L’Anse. Accessible by most vehicles, Mount Arvon is worth checking out.
“Welcome to the AAA Walls”
The sign that greeted us was dwarfed by the massive rock wall looming before us. Based on topographical maps, we knew that something pretty large sat near AAA Road (Marquette County, Upper Peninsula) but we never suspected it was a solid wall of rock.
There’s a National Day for everything. Today just happens to be national plan your vacation day. We have a lot of planning left to do but this is what’s on our list so far for our Michigan trips.
Letherby Falls is one of the most impressive and unique Michigan waterfalls we have visited. Chutes, drops, slides, cascades…you name it, it has it.
Over the past few years, Steve and I have made a huge dent in our Michigan Waterfalls list. This year, however, we seemed to be spending more time seeing waterfalls we’ve already visited instead of discovering new ones. So we planned a trip focused solely on seeking out some we hadn’t seen before, including Black Slate Falls; a new favorite.
Sugarloaf Mountain may not be Mount Everest, but it certainly has something to offer those in the Marquette area. Honestly, I could have sat up there all day, admiring the view. Miles and mile of forest in one direction, Lake Superior 470 feet below in another. This 360 view of the Marquette area is pretty breath-taking, and I don’t say that a lot about views.
Yellow Dog Falls is located on the Yellow Dog River in Marquette County. This river is said to run wild throughout the country, untouched by human development and it’s clearly true. Many of the waterfalls are not very easily accessible. Yellow Dog Falls is one of the larger falls, nearly twenty feet in height and is the most accessible.
