April is a great month for visiting waterfalls, the snow has melted, the rivers are running and the falls are roaring.  Some are easy to hike to for a tour and some are reached via "rustic" trails.

Tahquamenon Falls in the upper peninsula, Piers Gorge in the upper peninsula and Ocqueoc Falls in the lower peninsula are reached after an easy walk.


Nelson Canyon Falls, Pinnacle Falls and the Sturgeon Canyon Gorge Falls all require difficult hikes, even very difficult, but the rewards are worth it.

The best pictures and info on Michigan Waterfalls is at www.mifalls.com by Phil Stagg.

While not a waterfall, Horse Race Rapids becomes popular with kayakers this time of year. The trail to the actual rapids is extremely steep and difficult.

There is another waterfall in the lower peninsula at Bear Cave in Buchanan.

I will be presenting Nature Getaways via ZOOM through the Paw Paw District Library on April 20.

The latest podcast, Bear Cave, is online.

New podcasts are posted on the 2nd & 4th Thursday at www.mibackroads.com .
