Bond Falls is considered one of the most picturesque waterfalls of the Midwest. Enjoy the beauty up close in the falls or hike a boardwalk/gravel trail around the falls.  

Very short hiking trail (walk) along the river to view the falls from various parking lots. There is a boardwalk with viewing platforms from the lower parking area or a gravel path from the roadside parking area that lead to stairs down to the board walk. Along the boardwalk there are multiple places where you are able to go down and enter the water as well as other hiking paths. 

Pack List

  • Michigan Recreation Passport - can be purchased at park

I love checking out Bond Falls every time I'm in the area. You can actually climb right under the waterfalls too. Bring a swimsuit and water shoes and experience the rush for yourself!
