For a pretty good look at the waterfall experience as a whole, the Falls River drops so many times on its way to Lake Superior in L'Anse, MI. The beauty begins at the aptly named Powerhouse Falls:
After visiting these to falls, you have to head into town to see the rest of the falls. There is an Upper Falls mentioned in the Penrose book, but due to it being outdated and a lot of development since it's publishing, we found no way to photograph this falls without trespassing. There is a path to the next falls, Unnamed Falls, that we went down, not sure if we were trespassing in someone's backyard or not - I always try and remember to be courteous, and above all, quick.
Getting there: To get to Power House and Power Dam Falls, turn left on to Power Dam Rd. as you head towards L'Anse on US41. The road curves sharply then crosses some RR tracks and there should be signs as you turn onto a trail road. Powerhouse Falls are at the end of the road, and as you head back out, look for a clearing on your right, and follow a lightly worn path into the woods for Power Dam Falls.
We got to Unnamed Falls by taking E. River Rd. (you passed it at the RR tracks) to a washout near where the tracks come back out, parked and walked to the end of a new road and some houses, where we found the trail.
Middle Falls are best viewed from a dirt trail that starts just off 6th St. Park on the street then follow the dirt road, bike paths downstream for Lower Falls and upstream for Middle Falls. The other section of Lower Falls (pic above) is better viewed by parking on the right off US 41 just past the RR tracks, find the trail and walk downstream. I hope to contact the Tourism Dept. and get better directions/access soon for a trip in June.
Hike: Easy to Moderate
