A mere 800' from the Munising Falls Visitor Center is an easily accessible waterfall in a secluded valley. 

Munising Falls is a 50' falls located inside the city limits of Munising. The trail to the waterfall is directly outside the visitor center and makes for a quick and easy hike after stopping by to pick up a permit or check in with a ranger. 

The paved trail is cool and shaded as it follows a creek to a viewing platform at the base of the falls. There are also two sets of stairs that lead to additional platforms that offer unique perspectives of the falls. One set of stairs branches off from the main trail just before the main viewing platform on the right and the other set of stairs is located to the left of the main platform. This short hike sees many visitors so expect company!

Munising Falls Reviews

It was a rainy day and regardless, lots of people here to see this waterfall.

Quick walk to the falls. Conveniently located right by the Visitor Center too.

The waterfall is great! Very accessible for all folks, the multiple viewing platforms were great for photos

There aren't many waterfalls you can stand under and take a refreshing shower. There's also a small side trial that leads to the top of the falls! I've been here both in the summer and winter, and actually enjoyed the falls more in the off season. It is rarely visited late fall through mid-spring. So if you stop then you'll have the place to yourself!
