Silver River Falls

Silver River
near Eagle Harbor, MI

A trip to the Keweenaw Peninsula can easily include several waterfalls reached within less than five minutes' work. One of these is the Silver River Falls, just north of Eagle Harbor near the intersection of M-26 and Brockway Mountain Drive.

The river drops in a handful of sections as it slides down the smooth rock before ending up calm at the bottom of the hill. Trees surround the bank on either side, and a pretty easy dirt path follows the southern bank. Check out the video below from June 2012:

Getting there: Silver River Falls are located just off M-26, three miles north of Eagle Harbor. There is a parking lot on the east side of the road, trail begins on the west side.

Overall: Good
Hike: Easy
