Explore Wagner Falls

Rate this Adventure Michigan Wagner Falls

Added by Sonja Saxe

A short half mile round trip walk through the woods will take you to a viewing platform at the base of the scenic Wagner Falls.

Wagner Falls is an easy-to-reach waterfall right off of 94. There are parking areas on both sides of the highway so even when the trail is busy you will likely find a spot. Its close proximity to the highway and short trail make Wagner Falls the idea place to go if you are limited on time but want a rewarding view.

The trail to the falls is only a quarter-mile and ends at a viewing platform that gives the perfect perspective of Wagner Falls cascading over rocks and logs. There is a bench on the viewing platform and if you get lucky and have the place to yourself it is a peaceful spot to relax, watch the waterfall, and eat a quick snack.
