Waterfall

A short hike just outside of Houghton, Michigan with three impressive waterfalls.

Hungarian Falls is a set of three waterfalls, the largest being around fifty feet in height, on the Dover Creek, just outside of Houghton, Michigan. In less than a mile, you can access these waterfalls, plus smaller unnamed drops and some very scenic overlooks. 

The lower and middle drops are below a small reservoir and the upper drop, a unique waterfall composed of volcanic rock, is above the reservoir. 

The best season to visit overall is spring, after the snow has melted or after a hard rain.

Generally this is a quite location. While it doesn't get as many visitors as some of the other Michigan waterfalls, there might be a few other people on the trail during your visit.

New Favorite MI waterfall!

This waterfall is absolutely beautiful! Trust the coordinates where to park, when I got there two other cars were there trying to figure out where the falls were because there are no clear signs. After they left I had to place to myself for over an hour. It was wonderful!
