Let’s Take An Adventure To: Tahquamenon Falls State Park
We’re going on an adventure, come on! We’re checking out Tahquamenon Falls in the Upper Peninsula.
Tahquamenon State Park has over 35 miles of hiking trails and a 4 mile-trek between the upper and lower falls.
It takes 94 steps to get to the bottom, and see the best view! And totally worth it!
The falls can be enjoyed all year round, with April and May being its peak season for how heavy the river flows.
The upper falls water flow is 50,000 gallons per second, making it the second most voluminous waterfall east of the Mississippi River.
The locals nicknamed it ‘Root-Beer Falls’ for its unique brown coloring and white, frothy foam.
The river gets its color from tannic acid, naturally extracted from the plants and tree bark around it.
