Added by Matt Johnson

Located on the northern edge of Pictured Rocks, Sable Falls is a secluded cascade that flows from Sable Creek to the lakeshore

Located off of H-58, Sable Falls can be found about a mile north of the eastern terminus of Pictured Rocks and the Grand Sable Visitors Center. There is a large parking lot area for the falls, along with an entrance onto the North Country Trail, which runs along the falls. The hike is short, with stairs leading towards the falls. The trail continues along the creek to Sable Beach, and east to continue the NCT. The falls have a continuous flow along all seasons.
