Hungarian Falls - Michigan
Lake Linden, MI
A hidden treasure in the Keweenaw Peninsula, the five (or more) drops within a 15-20 minute walk around the Hungarian Creek is a reward for any waterfall entusiast that puts in the effort. It took us two separate trips to get the falls with significant flow, as the first time only the Upper Falls were worth it. The Upper Falls (above) have the biggest drop and are easily reached taking the right dirt path from where you park. The creek then flows in to a holding pond above a dam, which will be the next drop if water flow is high:
Getting there: From M-26 in Lake Linden, head north on Sixth St. You'll go up a hill and start seeing trail roads. Take the third one on the left if the gate is open, and head in taking the right fork when they split and parking shortly after just below the dam. If the gate is closed, it is maybe a quarter mile hike in to the fork.
